Young Explorers is back!

Peterborough Museum would like to announce that the monthly toddler group, Young Explorers, will be resuming, after a summer’s break, in October with a new time of 1 – 2.30 pm

Each month, a different museum object and gallery is chosen and then linked with story, rhyme and craft. Young Explorers is a great opportunity for toddlers to engage with the museum collection as well as an opportunity to develop essential language and social skills in a relaxed and inspiring setting.

“It’s the best thing happening in the museum. My little one loves it!” says Glenys Patten (mother of three-year-old Issy Patten)

Young Explorers is led by Carol Law, Education Officer for Vivacity Heritage: ‘I’m always looking for opportunities for “chatter” and objects, story, the galleries and craft provide such a rich resource! And we have such great tactile things in our handling collection – such as woolly mammoth teeth and fossilised Plesiousaur bones… It’s not just the toddlers that like to touch these things, the adults do, too!’

On Thursday, 1 October, toddlers and their carers will get up close to real roman roof tiles in our Roman Gallery and enjoy participating in the story The Three Little Pigs. Then we will be busy building our own homes to take home. Will yours be made of straw or sequins?!

Young Explorers meet on the first Thursday of each month (term-time only). So dates for your diary for the rest of 2015 are: 1 October, 5 November and 3 December.

Cost £3 per participating child (accompanying babies are free).

Spaces restricted to 15 children and their carers, so booking advisable.

To book, phone Peterborough Museum on 01733 864 663.
