A new exhibition giving children a taste of life in the Victorian era will open at the Museum of Wigan Life in time for Easter half term.
‘Child’s Play – a celebration of childhood’, is a free, interactive experience giving families an insight into Victorian life through dress up, games and education and will be open for visitors from Tuesday 3rd April.
Child’s Play will replace the popular Animal Mummies Uncovered display, a touring exhibition produced by Manchester Museum.
Offering an interactive chimney sweep activity, a Victorian school room complete with slate, chalk and even teacher dress for parents plus traditional school yard games, the Museum of Wigan Life is keen to show children the stark contrast to childhood in the modern day.
