3 reviews of Ragged School Museum in English
I'm not sure I fully understand the pull of this museum but if you have children under 10 treat them to a visit.
When my kids were younger they even dragged me along two days in a row during their school hols to experience an old Victorian school.
There is a little cafe downstairs and they open the doors up onto the canal in good weather so parents can while away the time with a good book and some deliciously creamy ice-cream whilst the kids 'play school' upstairs.
Interactive games and activities for younger children in a Victorian school setting.
Definitely worth a visit, possibly despite and maybe because it retains a fairly amateur feel to it. There isn’t that much to see, a lot of what there is is geared to giving schoolchildren a feel for what life was like way back then.
Staffed a lot by volunteers, if you are luck you will get one old enough to remember schools not too dissimilar from this who will be prepared to chat (if you let him)
I went here quite a bit when i was a child. The museum is set beside Regents canal and hopes to provide the visitor with the ‘authentic’ Victorian experience. Victorian classrooms are set up, with actors ‘teaching’ visitors in the typical victorian way- i guess in a manner stricted than today! There’s also a victorian kitchen scene to nose around.
