A Trip Back in Time – Abbey House Museum

Monday 29 January 2024

Last week, we had the privilege of spending the day at Abbey House Museum.

We spent the morning wandering through authentically recreated streets, exploring Victorian shops and houses. As we toured the museum, we considered how living standards have changed, particularly considering the similarities and differences in shopping then and now.

In the afternoon, the children learned about how household items have changed since the Victorian era. From personal hygiene and heating the home, to cleaning carpets and washing clothes – we were astounded by how much easier things are for us today!

Help at home by asking your child about our visit. How might life have been different as a child in the Victorian era?
