Medieval theme for family fun

Perth Museum and Art Gallery is the venue for a family event with an 'olde worlde' flavour taking place later this month.

Organised by the museum and the National Library of Scotland, the 'Medieval Family Day' on Saturday 28 May promises activities to interest children and adults alike.

A juggler and a 'medieval knight' will make a personal appearance. Visitors can watch chain mail being made, have a go at calligraphy and learn about food from the period. They can also find out about one of the National Library's manuscript treasures from Perthshire. The Murthly Hours is a richly illustrated book of prayer dated 1280, which visitors can explore via an exhibition and online access to our digitised version.

See our Events page for further details.
