Peter Rabbit: Mischief and Mayhem

24th June 2017 @ 10:00 am - 24th September 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Bunnies will be bouncing all over the Museum this summer, as Peter Rabbit hops, skips and jumps right off the page in this interactive exhibition about Beatrix Potter’s most famous creation.

Generations of children have grown up with Peter Rabbit, from reading the original tales to watching the current TV animation. This exhibition looks at Peter across the ages, and includes original artworks, first editions and early Peter Rabbit merchandise.

In our family gallery on the 1st floor, visitors can have fun helping Mrs Tiggywinkle hang up the laundry or visit Mrs Rabbit in her burrow!  Children can dress up as Peter, help plant carrots in Mr McGregor’s garden or curl up with one of the books in our story corner.

Why not enter our miniature letter writing competition, and win exclusive Beatrix Potter prizes?

“Once upon a time, there were four little Rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter…”
