Prepare for an eggcellent Easter at the National Football Museum

30 March 2017


There’s more than just chocolate to get your teeth into this Easter at the National Football Museum.

Visitors have a final chance to relive England’s greatest triumph in our World Cup 1966 exhibition. The exhibition weaves together the testimonies of players and spectators alike, incorporating iconic objects such as the Jules Rimet trophy and the ball used in the dramatic Wembley final. Don’t miss your opportunity to explore the nation’s most compelling football story.

Younger football fans will be whisked back to bygone eras in our Going to the Match sessions, taking in the sights, smells and sounds of the matchdays of old. 8 – 12 year olds can dress up, investigate objects and explore the museum’s extensive galleries to experience what it was like to be a football fan through the years.

Our popular Arcade Club returns this April, offering over 50 classic arcade games to play over the holidays. Gamers can roll back the years up on Level 4, with timeless originals like Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Street Fighter II all available, alongside sporting classics such as Track & Field and Virtua Striker. An all-day ticket costs just £5, so pay and play to your heart’s content.

We’ll be going on an egg hunt over Easter weekend, searching high and low across the galleries on our Easter trail. To play for free, pick up your guide at reception and follow the clues around the museum, tracking down those elusive eggs. There’s a prize on offer for those who complete the trail – all the more reason to get sleuthing!

Free Football Skills sessions will run throughout the two-week break, offering a series of fast and fun drills for 5-12 year olds, while our Sand Art workshop (Tuesday 4th April), arts and crafts sessions and additional family-friendly activities will keep your little bunnies very happy indeed.
