The Tiger Who Came to Tea

The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Things to see & do

Suddenly there was a ring at the door… The Tiger said, ‘Excuse me, but I’m very hungry. Do you think I could have tea with you?’

Our bestselling, immersive exhibition will run until 5 January 2020.

£1.50 in addition to your Discover Day Pass.

Join The Tiger for tea and hear the tale of his surprise visit to Sophie and her mummy. Open the door and take a trip into the real-life world of Mog the Forgetful Cat. 

Crawl through a giant cat flap and find Mog’s family house. Look for the hidden eggs for her breakfast. Explore her garden, but watch out for the mousedogbird! Pick up your groceries at Mog’s local shops, settle down with a story at the bookshop, and help Mog and her friends get better at the V.E.T.

Discover even more of Judith Kerr’s creatures as you meet Katinka with the magical tail and find the Crocodile under the Bed – perhaps he’ll fly you to a special birthday party with the King of the Jungle. It will be a very good party. 

Featuring 14 Judith Kerr books, with myriad worlds to explore, this 3D immersive exhibition also includes engaging facts about Judith Kerr’s life.

“Great place to entertain the little ones. Love the play areas, very engaging for the little one, plus the areas for some arts and crafts are amazing! We had a great time meeting the “Tiger who came for tea” – couldn’t get my little one to stop asking where the tiger went 😅” Facebook review.
“The immersive exhibitions are consistently fantastic but ‘The Tiger who Came to Tea and the Adventures of Mog the Forgetful Cat’ is, in my view, its best one yet.” Milk at the Museum blog
“We all had a brilliant afternoon at the story centre. My 3 year old daughter was in her element when we visited the special exhibition of Tiger Who Came to Tea! The storyteller who read the story was very interactive. Then everyone got to explore the book in the exhibition and also the Mog stories. Would highly recommend going!” Trip Advisor review
