Speaking about the programme, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Maura Hickey said: “This is a great way of introducing the very young to the world of museums.

“The activities on offer across the region will encourage creativity in a fun and enjoyable way and I would encourage all parents and carers to take their little ones along.”
