Overview

The Ragged School Museum is housed in an ex-warehouse (which Dr Barnardo transformed into a 'ragged school' for the underprivileged), and is dedicated to the history of the East End. Since it opened in 1990 it has played host to loads of children and family activities, from Punch & Judy shows to Victorian lesson role-playing. There is even a re-created Victorian classroom to find out what schooling was really like in the 'old days'. Inquire about the History Club for adults interested in the history of the East End. Various exhibitions have looked at different areas of the Tower Hamlets borough. Entrance is free, but donations are appreciated.
