Make Your Mark At Dover Museum

Wednesday, 16 July 2008
Visitors are invited to make their mark at Dover Museum on Monday 28 July - with a Family Day to make your own bookmarks, and the opportunity to tell your own story about your treasured memories of childhood to 'Museum TV'.

The Family Day runs from 10am to 4.30pm and visitors will be able to choose from a variety of designs or create a design for their own bookmark. Normal admission rates to the Museum apply but entry is free to Dover District residents.

Dover Museum is also inviting visitors young and old to bring along a toy, game or hobby and tell a story about it to 'Museum TV' in a special studio. The results will be shown on the Museum TV internal channel during the toy exhibition from 22 September.

Mark Frost, Assistant Museum Curator said: "As well as inviting families to come along to enjoy the latest of the popular activity days, we are inviting visitors to bring along a toy and tell us all about it. Toys often have very special associations, whether it's the thrill of opening it at Christmas or a treasured memory of childhood, and we are inviting people to come along and share these memories with us."
