Experience expert-led activities, including arts and craft creations (such as creating your own Roman Chariot drivers licence, and Roman god and goddess colouring activities), and learn some new Latin words.
Visit Lego Pompeii and get up close and personal with ancient Roman objects from the museum collection.
Eat lunch like a Roman at Sounds Cafe afterwards.
