Explore at Pandora's for Children

  • Pandora's Box 21 Colliergate York, YO1 8BN United Kingdom (map)

 No lessons are involved, no skills are needed, all materials are provided.  Your children, ages 4 and up , will get to explore a variety of oddities, curiosities and interesting pieces of natural history, crystals, fossils, fur, antlers, horns, bones and taxidermy. We will teach them what the items are, where they came from and explain why we take care of nature and nature's creatures. We will introduce them to some of our taxidermy pieces and the idea of handling such items gently.  This event is limited to 8 children so everyone gets the time to see all of the items and handle them.  All children will leave with a small prize at the end.   We will answer all of their questions about the shop and our creepiest museum collections and make sure it's a fun experience for all!  

 It is best to book in advance to be sure we have enough space to accommodate you.  Classes take place in our shop in the city centre. Transport is not provided. Parents must remain for the duration of the class.  Ages 4 and up. Please be sure your child has the ability and attention span to participate in this activity before signing up. If your child has special needs and you'd like to set up a one on one visit, please let us know, we will be more than happy to accommodate.  The shop does have a large step up that would be difficult for a wheelchair.  We don't mind parents reminding their children, but running round  the shop would be hazardous to all and can not be allowed. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
