Schools re-opening

The original hope was to re-open for schools in September. This meant a huge push to get spaces ready for school groups. The upper floors of the museum were largely unaffected, although heating systems had to be replaced. Ground floor spaces were identified that needed to be repaired as soon as possible to accommodate some activities that had gone on in the main galleries.

The education programme relaunched as planned and hundreds of school children have enjoyed living history sessions on "1940s: Wartime Children" and "Christmas at the Workhouse".
