Peter Rabbit: Mischief and Mayhem

Bunnies will be bouncing all over the River & Rowing 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, Tiggy-Winkle 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?
