We were aiming to go for their one adult admission and two children go free which would have cost £9-00, the ticket lasts a year. As everything goes though as it was school holidays that ticket wasn't available! Still it only cost £12 , so that wasn't bad for the day.
Today's theme was Transport.
We looked around the museum which has a functional Victorian kitchen, the boys made trains out of biscuits. Then we went to the Victorian schoolroom and they also have a mock up of a blacksmiths.
They have a new education centre which has been built since we went last. In there they had a load of tables set up with activities, so we spent 2 hours making paper boats and planes ( which were later tested out in the gardens)
We also made pasta pictures of different modes of transport and made hot air balloons.
We had a picnic in their beautiful gardens, they also have lovely tea rooms which we didn`t go in as it usually costs us a fortune.
If you zoom in on Soloman ( bottom left) you can see he`s doing the "loser" sign and poking his tongue out! Little monkey !
We then moved on to upstairs to look round some more of the museum, they have old toys from Victorian times up to about the 70`s. Malcolm and I both recognized some of the toys. Frightening !!
Then it was home for tea, afterwards Eden wanted me to dye her hair and as I write this our local youth worker, Chris, has come round to practice the songs that they are playing on their guitars on Sunday at church.
I`m hoping to sit for a while now and maybe pick up my knitting needles!
