Here are some examples of past workshops held at the museum.

Zoolab – a family workshop with live animals!

Zoolab visited us last year with four hugely entertaining family workshops linking their exotic animals with the animals on display in the museum. They are returning with another workshop during February half term: Monday 12th February at 1pm & 2pm and Tuesday 13th February at 11am.  Booking is now open and tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

Museum of the Future school visit

Ursuline High School in Wimbledon visited the museum to celebrate the restoration of the Toynbee Fountain in Wimbledon Village. They spent some time exploring the museum and creating their own ideas for a museum of the future.
