Bring your family on a journey to explore colourful Roman mosaics and digitally design a magnificent mosaic inspired by objects from the Museum in this free, drop-in event.

Learn about how mosaics were used by the Romans for decoration and what they showed, from animals to dramatic masks, then use tablets to create your own striking design, using colours to convey your personality.

This event is part of the public programme supporting the exhibition Legion: life in the Roman army (1 February – 23 June 2024).
