Seeds and history on offer at the Waterfront Museum this weekend

If you’re stuck for something to do this Saturday (22 May), then make sure you pay the National Waterfront Museum a visit.

From 10am till 4pm you’ll get the chance to track down your family tree at the Family and Local History Research Fair. Organized by the Glamorgan Family History Society, discover how to search archives, records and photographs as well as meet experts from various organizations.

Then from 1 to 4pm come along and Plant a Seed! To celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity 2010 this drop-in workshop has been designed to get you started on growing your own flowers and vegetables and children will be able to make their own decorated pot. There will also be free sunflower seeds up for grabs to the first 100 visitors!

“It’s all go once again at the Museum this weekend,” said Head of Museum, Steph Mastoris. “There’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking to find out about your ancestors or want to know more about biodiversity and planting seeds.”

Family History and Local Research Day will take place 10am-4pm and Plant a Seed will run 1-4pm.
