Thanks to everyone that joined us for February Half Term at the Ragged School Museum!
Warehouse to Schoolhouse
On Wed 15th and Thurs 16th February visitors discovered how the Ragged School Museum has changed over the last 140 years!
From a Victorian Lime warehouse to visits from Bikers and
Rockstars and now finally as an important Heritage site, the history of 46-50 Copperfield Road has been full of changes. Visitors created their own warehouses full of goods, Barnardo’s style tophats and pince-nez to play the part of Barnardo the school teacher, had a go at writing articles for our own version of Night and Day and even made their own motorbike toys to take home!
Information about our EASTER HOLIDAY ACTIVITES will be posted here soon so watch this space!
Art activities will be on offer throughout the Museum. The Victorian classroom will be also open to peruse, as well as the East End Kitchen, Under 5s Ragamuffin Room and the Towpath Café for those parched grown-ups!
Thank you to all who attended our October Half term event and welcomed Clover Moon at the Ragged School Museum.
As well as our regularly scheduled Hallowe’en shenanigans visitors learnt all about Clover’s time in school, her life as a poor Victorian and her love for art.
Penguin Random House also provided trinkets to take home and prizes to be won in our character competion, including 5 signed copies of the book!
