Toy stories: ‘hidden’ LEGO men helping kids unlock Kilkenny’s rich history
LEGO men and women are helping to teach children about Kilkenny’s rich history at the Medieval Mile Museum.
Ten miniature figures, each representing different chapters in Kilkenny’s history, have been strategically hidden in different locations around the museum as part of an innovative new initiative to encourage children to learn more about their past.
The museum said the LEGO hunt is a great way of making history fun and accessible for children.
A spokesperson said: “Museums can be a daunting place for kids, and History can be taken a little too seriously sometimes so we are hoping to change that and help to bring these fascinating characters from Kilkenny’s past into the lives and imaginations of the children who visit the Museum.”
All-day entry to the Medieval Mile Museum is €8 for adults, €6.50 for students/seniors, €4 for children and €16 for a family.
The entry fee includes an interactive audio guide and the LEGO hunt.
