Calling all Young Explorers – bring your parents, carers or grandparents for a fun morning! See how a different museum object and a different gallery can be explored through story, rhythm, rhyme and craft. Young Explorers is great for developing early literacy skills, social skills, creativity and enquiry.

Join us every first Thursday of each month during school term time for a special Young Explorers toddler session, from 10am–11.30am and 1pm-2.30pm. £3 per participating child (2-5 years).

Get up close to our insect collection (in resin) and then enjoy the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ in our Wildlife Gallery. Then get crafty with making a bug pot!

The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Thursday 2 October

Handle a range of teapots from our collection in our Changing Lives gallery and then enjoy the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. Then get crafty with making a tiger tablemat to take home, just in case a tiger should happen to come to tea at your home…

Additional toddler sessions can be arranged for pre-school playgroups. Booking is essential because places are restricted. To book, call Peterborough Museum on 01733 864 663 or email museum@vivacity-peterborough.com.
