Chelmsford Museum- The Victorians

On Tuesday 19th Rowan Class visited Chelmsford Museum for an afternoon of Victorian fun! We learnt about the original building of the museum (as it’s a Victorian building) and then we learnt what life would have been like for the servants of the house. We visited the kitchen and handled real Victorian artefacts. We also explored what it would be like to complete the chore of washing during this period – it was hard work! We even found out that their pre-soak soap was made from stale urine!
