We're really looking forward to seeing everyone this Sunday (the 3rd of December) for our open day, part of Edinburgh's '24 Days of Advent'!
Our (beautifully decorated!) building will open to the public from 11am until 4pm, and we'll be running miniature Victorian school lessons throughout the day (lasting approximately 20 minutes each), once an hour on the half-hour. We must warn you, though - we won't be any less strict just because it's Christmas...!
We'll also have food, drinks and stocking fillers for sale, plus a bit of carol singing in the afternoon. You'll be able to have a go at writing on our slates or with our split-nib pens and ink in our authentic Victorian schoolroom, and see all manner of old-fashioned household objects in our museum room. Our costumed volunteers will be on hand to help out and answer any questions.
This is a free event. For more information about 24 Days of Advent please see the Edinburgh Christmas website:
