  • 'Dig' into the past in the archeo-pit - find bones, coins etc.
  • Try their hand at some of the Celtic activities making shields, swords, brooches, necklaces and possibly even a little clay pig to take home!
  • Complete the Navan trail to get a prize at the end.
  • Touch history with the feely boxes... if they dare.
  • Make their very own badge to take home as a gift or simply to remember their visit.
