This exhibition explores the experience of childhood 18th and 19th centuries; from the fine country house to the gloom of the workhouse.
Each Wednesday a member of our team will be in traditional 18th century costume to make this experience extra special. There will also be an opportunity to go beyond the velvet rope and examine the beautiful rooms up close.
Come and meet a member of the Collections Team and discover what they are working on. From cleaning to packing and marking to photographing, there will always be lots of ways for you to lend a hand.
How might we understand the collections through making?
