  • Visitor Information

THE LIVESEY MUSEUM IS NOW CLOSED DOWN HOWEVER THE LATEST PLANS ARE TO ALLOW Theatre Peckham TO USE THE SPACE. WE'LL UPDATE AS AND WHEN WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION. WATCH THIS SPACE!The Livesey is aimed at children under 12, and will appeal to those with short attention spans as there is no permanent collection. Instead, an all-new interactive exhibit is unveiled each year. The emphasis is on learning by experimenting and investigation, as well as having fun and being imaginative. All exhibits complement the National Curriculum at Foundation Stage and Key Stages 1 and 2. Past exhibitions have covered Light, Robots, Art, Words and Numbers, and special events are held during half-term.
