Travel on an exciting, imaginary journey to the Arctic in this interactive hands-on workshop.

Discover some amazing Arctic animals as you touch a real orca tooth and reindeer fur, and learn how their bodies help them to survive in their cold habitat.

Learn about traditional Inuit life, from their homes to their clothing, and discover how they use natural resources to survive. Handle beautiful objects made by the Inuit, including snow shoes, snow goggles and a seal-skin parka, think about how they might be used, and identify the materials used to make them.

The Horniman is the perfect place to explore your topic further. Use their Arctic schools trail to guide your class to their famous taxidermy walrus; search their Natural History Gallery for other Arctic animals; and see amazing Inuit objects in their wonderful World Gallery.

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.
