History Week is back this February Half Term! Come and explore the past from the Ancient World up to the Victorians, with hands on activity sessions and amazing reenactors.
From Tuesday to Friday we have activity sessions in our Learning Space exploring different eras:
Tuesday – Ancient Worlds
Wednesday – Roman Invasion
Thursday – The Vikings
Friday – The Victorians
Workshop times: 10.30-11.15, 11.30-12.15 & 1-1.45 pm
On Friday, we will also be joined in our Courtyard for the day by the Ragged Victorians, a brilliant reenactment group who show the darker side of life in Victorian Britain!
Queen Victoria was a real trendsetter, explore how her reign changed so many things, from the Royal Mail to the Royal Mint and even the Royal Crown in our action-packed workshop!
Tickets for sessions in the Learning Space cost £6 per child and can be purchased via Ticketsource or by calling or popping in to the museum. Pre-booking recommended. There is no cost for entry to the Courtyard area to meet the groups.
These sessions are most suitable for children of school age and their grown-ups, but are accessible to all ages and abilities with adult support. Accompanying adults do not need to purchase a separate ticket.
