Mini Mammoths

A monthly activity session at Ipswich Museum for children and their parents, grandparents or carers.


Children have the chance to explore a different part of the museum each month through a mixture of play, stories, trails, craft and science activities, all designed to encourage development, communication and curiosity about the world around us. Come and join us and 'Woolly' the little mammoth to have some fun and explore the museum.

Mini Mammoths takes place on the first Tuesday of every month between 10.15 - 11.15am and 1.15 - 2.15pm. Cost: £2.50 per child, per session including a booking fee.

Mini Mammoths sessions are very popular and numbers are limited to ensure a high-quality experience. To book a place, please visit the Ipswich Regent website or telephone on 01473 433100.
