Project Description

Bounce into autumn with Peter and his mischievous friends

The Burton will be bunny-tastic this autumn with the arrival of Peter Rabbit™ and his mischievous crew including Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail. This interactive exhibition tells the story of the creation of Peter Rabbit, whose popularity transcends generations, and includes original, rarely exhibited artworks and manuscripts.

Fun for all ages, children and adults can learn all about Peter, his friends, and his arch nemesis, Mr. McGregor.
