Not ready to take on a full adventure just yet? Try Glencairn’s Adventure Seek & Find, a part of the Family Adventure Tour. Suitable for families and children grades K to 3.

Both options make use of the Great Hall, armory, and balcony, as well as Glencairn’s medieval herb garden outside, weather and season permitting. Whether you choose just one path, all six, or the Adventure Seek & Find, you will get up close with medieval art and objects on the first floor.
