Combining hands-on activities with depictions of dragons and other animals in Chinese and world mythology, this exhibition explores the stories told about these fantastic beasts.

With a changing programme of stunning loans from the British Museum, alongside the Museum of Croydon's own exceptional collection of Chinese ceramics, 'Dragon Tales' will bring young children face to face with these centuries-old beasts, and encourage them to discover more through dragon-themed play.

Please visit our What's On page for details of all events.
