Little Nippers: How does my garden grow?

Investigate the wonderful world of plants!

This month, Little Nippers discover the beautiful gardens that are a part of the rich history of the Ipswich Railway Workshops and the museum.

Spring is here and flowers and plants are blooming. How do plants grow? What do they need? How do they provide homes for other creatures? Little Nippers explore the amazing plant kingdom through fossilised specimens and the living ones growing right here at the museum.


Fridays 9:45am - 10:30am

8, 15, 22 and 29 October 2021


Little Nippers activity space, meeting at the front of the museum. Look for the sign near the black locomotive.


Little Nippers is included with Museum entry and free for Annual Pass holders. No need to book – just come along and join in the fun.

About Little Nippers

Designed for children from 2 - 6 years, Little Nippers encourages fun and discovery learning around a museum object.

Each week during school term, from March to December, the Little Nippers box is opened and an object is revealed. The children learn about the mystery object through story, dance, song and craft.

Participating families are then invited to the Museum's Trackside Café to meet with other families.
