Meet the Victorians – at work, at school, at home and at play

2 activities make up a half day and 4 activities make up a full day

Choose from these different activities to make up your 2hr or 4 hr session:

At Play

Experience the positive power of play as you engage in an interactive look at toys and games of the rich and poor in Victorian England.

At Work Upstairs

Pupils will investigate and experience life as a servant in a hands-on visit to the upstairs rooms in the Judges’ Lodging. Role play and object handling combine to bring this session to life.

At School

Meet our Victorian schoolteacher and find out just how different school was over 100 years ago. Our very interactive school session
looks at discipline, the school day, acceptable behaviour and learning by rote.

At Work Downstairs

Pupils will investigate and experience life as a servant in a hands-on visit to the kitchen and below stairs. Role play and object handling combine to bring this session to life.

The Toy Gallery

This exciting session will enthuse both pupils and teachers alike. Pupils will take on the role of Museum Conservator to examine how toys are conserved for future generations and to investigate how toys have changed through time. Pupils will then use our Toy Gallery, set out in chronological order, to identify and place toys on a time line. Pupils will also discover toys and games within living memory that their parents and grandparents would have loved and played with.
