Peter Rabbit: Mischief and Mayhem

Peter Rabbit: Mischief and Mayhem


Bunnies will be bouncing all over our Gallery, as Cumbria’s most famous literary character Peter Rabbit jumps right off the page in this interactive exhibition about Beatrix Potter’s first creation.

This exhibition tells the story of the creation of Peter Rabbit and includes original artworks and manuscripts which are rarely exhibited. It also reveals a fresh insight into the innovative way Beatrix Potter developed Peter Rabbit toys and games

Children can play like Peter in an interactive learning area. Activities include a giant board game, playing shop, and performing scenes from the Tales. Will your little bunnies help Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle hang out the washing, or aid Mr. McGregor planting carrots in his garden?
