The School Trip Community White Logo


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
