A group of young people from the Grange Centre, a charity which supports people with learning disabilities to lead independent and fulfilling lives, recently visited Winchester City Museum for an introduction to the history of Winchester.
The Grange Centre's visit was a lot of fun for both visitors and the museum staff. The team especially enjoyed showcasing artefacts on the museum displays, as well as watching their guests hold some real historical items. Another highlight of the visit was seeing everyone dressed in historical costume from the Roman and Anglo-Saxon times, while taking some photos as to which, they hope they will provide some fun memories for years to come.
“Everything went smoothly, in a relaxed and happily chaotic kind of way (which we seem to bring with us!). The team at City Museum were delightful, and found ways to engage with all of their visitors from The Grange - albeit it that they all were interested in completely different aspects of the museum! All in all, we had a very happy time and the feedback seemed to be that this was the part of their day that really stood out for them. So thank you again.” Eloise Appleby, Chief Executive Officer
