  • This museum is above all else great for kids. The theory is that you take your children there and sign them up for one of the old ragged school lessons. These lessons are done as they would have been ...  read more »
  • This is a great place to bring young children for a little trip out. When I had young relatives staying, we took them here. Firstly it is free, which is great, and the staff are very good with children and get them involved telling them stories etc. Worth a visit.
  • A great little museum showcasing East End poverty in the last few centuries. Limited opening times. Combine with a walk along the Canal from Limehouse to Hackney.
  • Best place ever! Staff and volunteering are so friendly, this is such an underrated place; every time I go, I always have the time of my life. Wish they opened more often.
  • I went there on a school trip and the was ok but strict also I discovered that the teacher's name is mrs perkins but that is not the amzing fact mrs perkin used to teach the class when she was younger.
  • I visited during the free summer holiday activity weeks and fell in love with this place. There are only a few members of staff and a lot of volunteers keeping this unique venue open. Some of the volunteers have been there for many years but they still love the place and still enjoy showing someone new the delights. There are four floors to explore with a local history museum on the ground floor, a Victorian classroom plus the Art Room on the first floor and the top floor has a kitchen where children can try and beat a rug, peg washing on a line, etc. The basement has a cafe that opens onto the Regent's Canal and a large soft play room for younger visitors. I visit a lot of museums that profess to be child-friendly but this place wins hands-down and I can't wait to go back. School visits have the run of the place during the week but the museum opens to the public for the Victorian school classroom experience on the first Sunday of the month.
