Get into Summer – Museum Summer Activity Programme

Our Museums across the Scottish Borders are offering a range of FREE, fun activities for children and families this summer.

There will be Family tickets for the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum in Duns to ‘Minibeasts in the Museum’ at Halliwells House Museum in Selkirk, there has never been a better time to visit our museums.  As well as the bookable arts and activity sessions, we have fun, family-friendly guides and treasure trails available when you book a visit to many of our museums.

Where possible all the arts and activity sessions will take place out of doors.  You can find out more about them by clicking on the links below. All activity sessions are FREE but must be booked in advance as places are limited.

Visits to all our museums must be booked in advance, click HERE to book your tickets now!

Activity trails and guides are available when you visit Jim Clark Motorsport Museum, Borders Textile Towerhouse, Hawick Museum and Sir Walter Scott’s Courtroom

Supported by the Scottish Borders Council and Scottish Government funding, the national ‘Get into Summer’ campaign will help children, young people and families reconnect and re-engage with their local communities and the environment and provide opportunities to socialise following a challenging period for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
