Never mind bats in the belfry... there are mice in the Museum!

But don't worry; they are invited guests. Mansfield Museum's Garden Department plays host to animals from the White Post Farm Centre on Saturday 16 August.

The event runs from 10am and admission is free with no need to book.

Animals from White Post Farm Park will be at Mansfield Museum on Saturday 16 August

As well as the cuddly, little, cheese-eating creatures; there will also be the chance to see rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, chickens, chinchillas and snakes on display.

Councillor Kate Allsop, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration at Mansfield District Council commented: "As Mansfield Museum is hosting a garden department this summer, it is only fitting that animals should feature in the event."

"This event is a great opportunity for children and their parents to come along and experience at first hand some of the animals they may not keep as pets as well as the opportunity to experience the life sized games and exhibition on offer."

The Garden Department is part of the Museum's Baily Bros. exhibition. This section is open until Saturday 30 August with lots of summer holiday fun on offer, including: giant outdoor board games (including Connect 4), interactive quizzes and a Mansfield Museum themed Crazy Golf course!

The Baily Bros. exhibition itself runs until 1 November and features a wide range of household items from the last hundred years arranged in the style of an early 20th century department store.

There is also a £500 furniture voucher, kindly donated by Westgate Department, to be won.
