The Powell-Cotton Museum is hosting an exploration for chlidren aged seven and over

The Powell-Cotton Museum at Quex Park, Birchington is searching for new explorers to follow in the footsteps of Percy Powell-Cotton.

Major Percy Horace Gordon Powell-Cotton was an explorer, hunter and early conservationist, most noted for the creation of the Powell-Cotton Museum in the grounds of his home at Quex Park.

Children aged seven and over, accompanied by an adult, can learn how to become an explorer and document their adventure through the museum.

The exploration is happening on March 11 and 12.

By the end of the session the children will have created their very own journal filled with pictures, maps and memories of their travels.

With two sessions taking place each day, there are plenty of opportunities for children to become bona fide explorers.

Tickets are priced at £6.95 for adults and £4.50 for concessions. Adult members can attend for free, and the cost for child members is just £3.00. The price also includes entry to the museum and gardens.

For more information on the event, or to buy tickets, visit, or call 01843 842168.
