Fossil events 25-28 July

With the start of the school holidays, there are lots of fossil-related events coming up at Lyme Regis Museum, including the first of four Family Fossil Days on Thursday 26 July with 'open house' at the museum and lots of opportunities for seeing, handling, hearing and talking about fossils. Also a gazebo outside on the terrace for even more activities, including the ever popular ammonite polishing. We're open free of charge all day from 10am to 5pm.

Wednesday 25 July sees a rockpooling session out on Broad Ledge to explore the magical world of sea creatures left in the wake of the outgoing tide. It meets at the museum at 3.45pm and takes about an hour and a half. Price £5 adults; children and students £2.50.

On Saturday 28 July there is a 'Facts on Fossils' mini-masterclass for all ages and levels. It is a session in learning how to find fossils, handling the extraordinary fossil finds that Chris and Paddy bring along, taking the opportunity to have your own fossils identified and much more. It usually lasts an hour... Price £4 for adults; free for children and students.
