Christmas Past at Hull Museums


You are warmly invited to join us as we gather by the cosy hearth this Christmas time.

Step back into the magical world of Christmas past and join our Victorian housekeeper Mrs. Miggins who requests the pleasure of your schools’ company to help her prepare the house for Christmas Day. Learn how we celebrated Christmas in the past, experience homes of days gone by and create your own Christmas decoration to take back to school.

There is a per pupil charge for this led session, call us to find out more about this exclusive seasonal offer.

Sessions run from 14th November to 16th December
