Holiday Activities



Join us for our Summer Holiday Family Activities


Victorian Job Fair!



How would you have handled the Victorian job market? Well come on down to the Ragged School Museum this summer to see whether you would have made it as a successful scientist or ended up in the gutters.




Would you have been a successful artist, writer, poet or actor or would you have explored the medical profession?  Or would you have ended up as a street seller or in the factories? Discover your own Victorian occupation and see how you would have fared at our Victorian Summer Job Fair!

Arts and craft activities will be on offer throughout the Museum, The Victorian Classroom, East End Kitchen and Under 5s Ragamuffin Room will also be open as usual, as well as our Towpath Café for a spot of tea!



Wednesdays and Thursdays from 31st July- 29th August


Admission and all activities are free! Donations are welcome




With support from the our wonderful donors who helped the Museum raise £10,000 through the Childhood Trust’s Summer Give and The Big Give.




















The RSM receives no public funding and donations are crucial for us to run our Family Events. The director has to raise £20k annually to keep the doors open. Anything you can give, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.







 If you would like to join us as a volunteer for this event more information can be found by clicking here.





Scroll down for our Holiday Gallery and see the great times had by our visitors!







Thank you to all who attended our October 2016 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 Cloclover-moon-packshotver’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!


Find out who won and read all about their wonderfully creative characters here.
