The National Print Museum will be celebrating Heritage Week with a Family Fun Day this weekend!

The free event will see printing demonstrations teaching visitors to be printers for the day, as well as face painting, children’s workshops and self-guided arts and crafts activities in the Education Area. The Museum, which is located in Beggar’s Bush Barracks on Haddington Road, will be open for Family Fun Day from 12pm to 4pm this Sunday.

Next week, the Museum will be taking part in Heritage Week by opening its doors to the public, with free guided tours. The tours will run twice a day, with one for adults at 11.30am and a family tour at 2.30pm. Places are limited, so call 01 660 3770, or send an email to info@nationalprintmuseum.ie to book your place.

The National Print Museum regularly runs family-friendly events and activities. They recently held a storytelling session for three to seven year olds, featuring the latest addition to their Junior Library, David Lucas’ Lost in the Toy Museum. Their Education Area, sponsored by the Aviva Stadium Community Fund, also features origami, alphabet games, activity sheets, and arts and crafts. Be sure to keep an eye on the Museum’s event page to see what is coming up!
