Meet the Victorians
Site: Abbey House Museum
A member of staff or freelancer leads this activity.
A chance to meet a Victorian visitor from the past. During your visit you will meet one or two inhabitants of our Victorian Streets who will tell you about their life, work and home in Victorian Leeds. During this visit costumed characters will introduce a range of objects and activities from their daily lives and there is always the opportunity for pupils to ask questions.
Classes will be split into 2 groups for the workshop, each group spending 45 minutes in the workshop and 45 minutes exploring the Museum galleries with their responsible adult. Workshops are available Thursday & Friday between 10.00am and 12pm.
