The EGG HUNT is on



Bridge Street, Chepstow

Friday 25 March  – Sunday 10 April 2016

Open: Mon-Sat (inc Bank Hols) 11-5, Sun 2-5

Admission Free


So they’re not real, or chocolate, but these eggs are all different colours, made of different things and come in different sizes, and there are lots of them hidden around Chepstow Museum now!

This year’s egg hunt has been laid to make young visitors look ‘eggs-tra’ hard at the displays in Chepstow Museum. It will take keen eyes to spot where the eggs have been cunningly camouflaged amongst the exhibits! And this year the Easter bunny makes an appearance too – in fact not just one bunny – the hunters will need to discover just how many little bunnies have sneaked into the Museum..

We’ve also devised some Easter Puzzles to take home and unscramble…just to add to the Eggs-tra fun!
