Holiday Activities




Our upcoming Family Victorian Lesson will be on Sunday 2nd February. More information can be found here.




Come and join us this FEBRUARY HALF TERM for…




Building Victorian Britain



 From Joseph Paxton’s Crystal Palace to Sir Horace Jones’ Tower Bridge, some of our best loved buildings were built during the reign of Queen Victoria. Many have stood the test of time and are some of the most iconic structures in Britain today, and those that are gone can still leave a lasting legacy.




Visitors to the Ragged School Museum this February Half Term can find out just what it took to Build Victorian Britain and who the great people behind it were.


We will have free arts and crafts activities on offer throughout the museum, face-painting and all of our usual Half-term fun!


Plus our Victorian Classroom and Victorian Kitchen will be open for you to explore along with the rest of our 19th century poor school. And of course, the Towpath Café will be open for those parched grown-ups!





Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th February 2020



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.
