Marvellous Machines!


Did you know that Victorian invented gym equipment, flying machines and computers?!


From typewriters to Tower Bridge, moving pictures to Meccano, the 19th century was the age of invention. Steam, clockwork, and even pedal power will all be put to good use this Easter as we explore Marvellous Victorian Machines! So put your inventing hat on and get those creative juices flowing as free art activities will be on offer throughout the Museum.


As usual the Victorian

classroom will also be open to peruse, as well as the East End Kitchen, Under 5s Ragamuffin Room and the Towpath Café for those parched grown-ups!



Wednesday 10th & Thursday 11th, Wednesday 17th & Thursday 18th April 2019


Admission and all activities are free! Donations are welcome.
