Hot Cross Bunnies Easter Hunt
The River Don Engine was used to drive a heavy plate mill. The workers at the River Don Works would throw birch twigs at the hot metal to lift scale off the steel.
There is a story that once a rabbit was caught up in the birch twigs and started running around the factory until the workers chased it out - it must have been a very hot cross bunny!
On Easter Sunday and Monday children can pick up a Hot Cross Bunnies Easter Trail to follow their movements around the museum - can you find all ten bunnies to collect your prize?!
Normal museum admission and opening applies. Donations welcome.
