The Award winning Museum is housed in three Victorian canalside warehouses, converted by Dr Barnardo into a ragged school. Visitors to the Museum today can take a journey through the history of the region as well as experience what it was like to be taught over one hundred years ago by 'stepping back in time' to the atmospheric recreated Victorian classroom.

Copperfield Road, 1877

  • 16 — 17 April 2014 10am-5pm *on now

Join us at the Ragged School Museum this Easter holiday to celebrate all things 1877!

1877 was a remarkable year – Edison invented the gramophone, we saw the first ever cricket Test Match and the first ever Wimbledon Championships... but most importantly, it was the year the Copperfield Road Ragged School opened its doors!

We’ll have lots of 1877-inspired fun and games for all the family to get stuck into.

Admission and all activities are free. The activities are suitable for ages 0-12. And our Victorian Classroom and Victorian Kitchen will be open to explore!
