New for summer 2023: Discover the extraordinary in the everyday with our brand new Wash Day exhibition. From domestic living to household gems, what will you find?

Come and view washing, drying and ironing goods from throughout history. How did the Victorian laundress wash bloomers? What products did they use, did they have the options we have today?

Enjoy interactive fun for all the family and the beloved smell of fresh laundry!

Have a go at the Wash Day trail, too - collect yours at the front desk! £3 per trail, including prize.
