Go on a multi-sensory, musical adventure and help a curator from the Museum to travel the world looking for instruments for the Horniman.

Use your imagination to join in with an interactive story, travelling to Nigeria, singing a Yoruba song of welcome, and then onto Brazil in search of musical instruments to bring back. Have a go at playing the instruments you have chosen!

Sessions will encourage students to:
Sit on the carpet, if appropriate (cushions available)
Listen to and engage with a sensory story
Experience and/or respond to a range of stimuli
Touch and explore museum objects
Take turns and share
Make independent and supported choices
Try something new

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.
