Adopt a Childhood Mouse

A little part of history

Children always love our mouse hunt around the museum. This year our big summer exhibition is "Childhood through the Ages", designed to educate and entertain children and adults alike. .

As ever there are beautiful hand-made mice available to adopt. Each one is individually themed to a child character from a particular point in history.

Bailiffgate mice are rapidly becoming collector's items.. At the end of the exhibition you can collect your adopted mouse (or mice), each with a certificate of adoption. Just check out all the range below, but hurry. They go fast!

Please note that these handmade mice are not children's toys, but a collector's item.

They should not be purchased as playthings for children
