Family Mensa at Bolton Museum, 10th March 2019

Join Family Mensa for a visit to one of the North West's lesser-known treasures: Bolton Library, Museum, and Aquarium.

Bolton Museum, Bolton, 13:00, Sunday 10th March 2019.

Ranging from Egyptian mummies to local history and wildlife, Bolton's collection has something for everyone. Better yet (at least for this keen aquarist), it adjoins with an extensive freshwater aquarium - we'll be exploring both during a doubtless fascinating afternoon.


As with all Family Mensa events, non-members accompanying a Mensan are very welcome - be they parents, grandparents, siblings or otherwise.


Entry is absolutely free, just meet at the Museum's main entrance at 13:00. I'll, as has become customary, be holding the Mensa logo on a white piece of paper.

Should you be joining us, I'd greatly appreciate an RSVP at james.o@mensanorthwest.com, to help anticipate numbers and ensure the whole group enters together.

Latecomers remain very welcome, just email me in advance, at the above address, and I'll send you my mobile number so you can be united with the group.
