A weekend extravaganza inspired by the museum's new experience Beasts of London! Children can create their own animated animal puppet show, discover the secrets of the Tower of London menagerie, get crafty with an animal mask or make a cast of their favourite animal footprint. Families may also spot some wandering characters in the galleries that may need some encouragement before performing in an animal cabaret!
