Half Term at the Ragged School Museum!
Wednesday 29th & Thursday 30th May
10am - 5pm
Join us at the Ragged School Museum for a half term packed with fun and games!
This half term we’ll be looking at the women behind the man - from Dr Barnardo’s loyal wife Sara and their outrageous daughter Syrie, to fellow philanthropists like Angela Burdett-Coutts and Annie MacPherson. You’ll be able to learn how Barnardo was inspired to open his first home for girls, why his daughter Syrie was the talk of the town and what he learned from the many female philanthropists of the East End.
There’ll be lots of activities for the kids including building origami boats and decorating your own Victorian rooms! Our Victorian Classroom and East End Kitchen will be open to explore, as will the Raggamuffins Room, our Under 5’s play area.
It’s all free and you can drop in anytime!
The Museum offers free activities every Wednesday & Thursday throughout the school holidays. Although the themes for the holidays change throughout the year, you can always expect the following:
