Surrey Museums Month and the i-spy Challenge


Surrey Museums Month each April is our celebration of Surrey's fantastic 43 museums and galleries and kickstarts the annual i-spy Challenge. If you are looking for great days out with your friends and family, then why not explore a few and get involved with hands-on workshops, activities or events. 

The i-spy challenge runs from 1st April to 1st September, always with a different trail theme. What's the theme all about in 2018? 


You might not find Superman, but you will find birds and planes...and maybe even a dragon. So, how many of the 17 Air-mazing Things to Blow You Away will you find for your chance to win a prize?
