Abbey House Museum

Details

Step back in time and wander through the enchanting streets, shops and houses and experience life as a Victorian. On the ground floor visit Stephen Harding Gate, the 19th century equivalent of a modern high street for some old fashioned retail therapy. In the back streets, see the home of the window washer woman or pop into the Sunday-School. On the first floor, see the Childhood and Community Galleries along with the changing programme of exhibitions.

A fun, family-friendly and interactive museum, Abbey House Museum is a great day out for all the family. Come along to one of their many family sessions as advertised on the website or pop in with friends for a trip down memory lane.
