Burgh House and Hampstead Museum Blog - February 2013

Penguins at Burgh House!

We love kids in our museum and so our new year’s resolution was to make the museum at Burgh House more kid friendly than ever before. Thanks to a generous grant from the Tana Trust we have been able to do just that and today – 6th February we see the launch of the Penguin Kids Corner.  Named after everyone’s favourite penguin, the High Hill Penguin, who lives in Hampstead Museum, Penguin Kids Corner is there to give all our young visitors something fun to do, be they babies, toddlers or school age.  Our new cosy reading corner is packed full of fun and interesting books for all ages, and with comfy beanbags it is the perfect place to get lost in a good book.  You can also dress-up as your favourite character from history (the staff at Burgh House have already had a lot of fun trying out the costumes), delve into the toy box or get your creating juices flowing on the colouring table.  We may even display some of our favourite creations in the museum! Now all we need is for you to come and have fun!

To celebrate we have two fantastic kids events coming up, on Friday 22nd February half term family fun for 5-9 years starts at 2pm (£3) and on 2nd April the Mad Hatters Easter Tea Party for 2-7 years olds is an afternoon not to be missed (£15).  Book Here! http://www.burghhouse.org.uk/events/family.aspx
