Eggstraordinary Easter Egg Trail

Eggs represent new life & rebirth and it's thought that this ancient custom became a part of Easter celebrations. FACT: In the medieval period, eating eggs was forbidden during Lent (the 40 days before Easter) so on Easter Sunday, tucking into an egg was a real treat!

Now scramble for the facts in our Eggstraordinary Egg Trail and find the egg-related animal in every gallery to complete the trail. 

This trail is FREE with a valid Museum ticket.
