Cuming Museum events

The Cuming Museum Cabinet of Curiosity logo

The Cuming cabinet of curiosity

Over the next 6 months, the Cuming Museum will be bringing fantastic activities and unique objects from our collections to three main libraries across Southwark.

Families will have the opportunity to develop new craft and design skills, find out about the role of museums and discover the rich history of the area.

The programme is part of the museum’s Looking to the Future project, funded by Arts Council England.

These free, 90 minute, hands-on sessions will run on Saturday afternoons at 2pm from September 2014 to March 2015 at Canada Water, Peckham and Dulwich Libraries.  The same 12 sessions will run in these three libraries. Simply go along to your nearest or favourite library of the three and have some fun.  No need to book.

The programme

All sessions are on Saturdays and start at 2pm.
