Riverside Museum Summer Beach
About Riverside Museum Summer Beach

The Riverside Museum's Summer Beach returns for the summer holidays!

Get your sunscreen and sunglasses and join us for fun and (hopefully) SUN filled days in the sand! We look forward to seeing you, relaxing on our deckchairs and having some fun with our buckets and spades.

Remember, the beach is free and open every day until September.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Riverside Museum Summer Beach are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
