Eerie-on-Sea Monster Museum Tour: Join the family monster hunt at the MAC this half-term!

This Halloween, families will be able to search for strange creatures and spooky spectres at the MAC as part of the national Eerie-on-Sea Monster Museum Tour, organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books. The fun, family trail celebrates the release of the latest book in the Eerie-on-Sea Mysteries series: Mermedusa by Thomas Taylor.

In the basement of the Grand Nautilus Hotel, Herbert Lemon is plagued by unsettling dreams. It’s Midwinter once again, and Eerie-on-Sea has been invaded by a famous podcast crew, determined to uncover all the secrets of Eerie, especially the famous legend of the fearsome Malamander. But Herbie and Violet are faced with a new mystery, one that threatens to shake the town to its very core. Is the Deepest Secret of Eerie-on-Sea about to be revealed?

Over 50 museums around the UK will be taking part over the October half-term and encouraging families to explore their local museum. The activity will run at the MAC from 27 October to 5 November 2023.
