In this exciting hands-on workshop, students will discover how aquatic animals survive in their habitats.

Discover how the bodies of freshwater animals are perfectly suited to help them survive in their habitat whilst examining an amazing selection of real Museum objects.

Dress as jellyfish, frogs or crabs, imitate their movements, and consider how (and why) they move like that. Examine a stuffed caiman, shark’s jaw and lobster, and identify the adaptations that help them to catch their prey… or defend themselves from predators.

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

Please be aware that the Aquarium is popular on Tuesday mornings, so you may wish to book this session at quieter times of the week.

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.
