Victorian Leisure Exhibition

31st March 2021 — 4th December 2021

This exhibition has been inspired by the 150th anniversary of The Royal Albert Hall, London and explores an era full of wondrous scientific discoveries, theatre and entertainment.

Fascinating objects on display include examples of early motion picture such as the zoetrope and magic lantern, to an architectural model of a Victorian theatre, Victorian outfits and an extravagant, green fringed, theatre handbill.

There’s a fun family quiz and object hunt available to do at the museum, as well as free peg doll making kits for visitors to take home, along with a free craft book, and templates for making your own Victorian puppet theatre.
