The Wild Escape

Come along to Rhayader’s Brand-New Attraction, TimeScape Rhayader, to follow a special nature trail through the exhibits!

Discover our unique landscapes, find out about our rare species, our fabulous fossils, and come face-to-face with an albino otter!

After completing the trail as a family, you will receive a prize to take home (one per child)!

And you can hang out in our bug-themed Creation Station to make a Bead-tle, Bug-tton, or Splot-tterfly to take home, using recycled bits and bobs plus paint, beads, googly eyes and mirth…

We will also be firing up our iSandbox, an interactive digital sand game!

We’re open 11am – 4pm, and you can come at any time in that window. The trail and activities will take approx. one hour to complete. If we are busy you may have to wait to join in with the bug crafts and iSandbox, though we will do our best to keep you busy while you wait with printed activity sheets, colouring, etc.

The craft activities are not suitable for children under five due to small beads and buttons! Adult supervision is required for all children, at all times.

There’s also activities from #TheWildEscape, that ask you to choose your favourite animal from our museum trail and imagine its escape back into its natural habitat. After you’re done, your work will be scanned and become part of a giant online artwork alongside pictures and stories created by children all over the UK.

About the Wild Escape

The Wild Escape is a major new project led by Art Fund uniting hundreds of museums with schools and families in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity.

Taking place from January to July 2023, The Wild Escape invites children to find a favourite animal in their local museum and create an artwork imagining its journey to a natural habitat.

The pictures and stories children create will be brought together in a collective work of art that imagines a better future for the wildlife on our doorstep, launched online and in venues across the UK on Earth Day 2023.

The Wild Escape is led by Art Fund alongside hundreds of museums, artists and environmentalists, in partnership with WWF, the RSPB, National Trust and English Heritage.

The Wild Escape is made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants, with additional support from Kusuma Trust, Foyle Foundation and a group of generous individuals and trusts.
