Explore three different habitats and the animals that live there. Hands-on and sensory elements will help students to explore these very different environments for themselves.

Join Horniman Museum and Gardens on an imaginary journey, taking you to a coral reef, a desert and the Arctic. Explore the different habitats using your senses and learn about the animals that live there in this tactile handling session.

Sessions will encourage children to:
Compare three different habitats
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.
