About this event

Discover the collections that make the Horniman special! Touch, see, smell and hear real things from African masks, spice jars, pueblo drums to sharks jaws in our Hands On Base then use your explorer skills to discover the galleries and Gardens in a new way.

Our Hands On Base will be open on Monday, Tuesday, thursday and Friday during October half-term. Take part in a series of challenges that could have you trying on clothes, playing music, drawing and of course exploring objects. Sessions are led by the Horniman team and by special guests from all over the world and the heart of your community.
