Located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, the Ragged School Museum is notable for being a recreation of a Victorian era school class room, based on the former Dr Barnardo’s Copperfield Road Ragged School that was formley located on the sight. It attempts to recreate the experience of school life in the Victorian time period, with visitors getting to see what it was like being a student in a school from that era.
Additionally, the museum also plays host to a 1900s East End Kitchen, which is a way to experience what food and cooking (in a school context) was like in the same period of history.
So if you want to experience life in an era that’s long since past, or just want to see what it would have been like studying at a Victorian age ragged school, this is museum that’s well worth checking out.
Open between 10am and 5pm every Wednesday and Thursday, with mock lessons available every 1st Sunday of the month. General admission is free, with charges only applying for schools and groups.
