Fossil Detectives Backpack Trail

We recommend this backpack for children aged 6+ due to small parts.

To borrow the backpack, please ask at the museum's reception desk. We do not pre-book backpacks, it is a first come, first served system on each day.

Please note: There is no charge for borrowing a backpack to explore the museum. We will ask for the name and contact details of the responsible adult accompanying children who use the backpacks.
