Come on an interactive, imaginary journey with the Horniman walrus as we search for a seahorse in a pond, the Amazon river, and the sea.

Along the way, you’ll meet some amazing aquatic creatures, from a frog to a fish, learn about their amazing bodies, and even sing about them.

Travel to the Amazon rainforest, bravely touch a stuffed caiman and learn about colour and camouflage. At the seaside, listen to the waves, feel sea spray on your face and go diving in search of aquatic creatures.

When you return, dress as your favourite animal from your journey and explore the amazing objects hidden around the room: touch a real shark’s jaw; feel an enormous Nile crocodile’s scaly skin; and see a frog’s skeleton up-close.

The cost of the session also includes timed access to the Aquarium (please note – this is not private access) outside the session.

About Horniman Museum and Gardens.

Matilda The Musical Logo

The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.

Learn about their world-class collections and discover information about world cultures, music, different species and the natural environment we all share.

There is more that unites us than divides us, and this can clearly be seen when looking at the 350,000 or so objects in the Horniman collections.
