Once again, after their hard work guarding the crops, the Scarecrows come to the museum to rest and relax. See how many you can spot, and vote for you favourite. Then travel with us on our railway or follow the autumn trail round the museum. After all this, perhaps have a cool, autumnal picnic or come into the warm to enjoy a cuppa and a cake in our own onsite cafe.
