Geology Walks: Family Beach Exploration
Saturday 20th May 2017This event has passed.

Head down to the beach to explore Dunbar’s rocky story. Where did all these pebbles come from? How many different types can we find? Each pebble contains clues to the past, telling us about the volcanoes and rivers that used to be here and helped make Dunbar special. We’ll explore the rocks on the shore and look at the cliffs, to work out all the different things that have happened in the past – and what’s going to happen next!

Suitable for families. Tickets £5 per family. To book, contact us at 01368 865899 or museumseast@eastlothian.gov.uk
