An ancient soul is stuck in modern London and she needs your help!
Join us at the London Docklands Museum to learn what ancient Londoners have seen over the centuries and explore the differences between modern London and Roman Londinuim. Then, help Roman Londoner Grata finish the journey she started more than 1,800 years ago by recreating a Roman funeral to guide her to the Underworld.
We will have fun exploring this ‘Styx, stones and Roman bones’ interactive experience and following lunch will explore the Mudlarks gallery and discover what life was like in the London dockyards.
The Story Garden and purpose build story world at the heart of the Discovery Centre centre are creative play spaces designed to inspire children’s curiosity and imagination. Hootah, a resident baby space alien, needs help to ignite his imagination and finish his story. We will look at how we can use our imagination to help Hootah finish his story and return it to his planet.
With an immersive play area and indoor story world the centre is the perfect place to practice our creative writing ready for the Autumn term at school.
From trains, cars, bikes and buses, we will discover a wealth of wheels on display in the exhibitions. We will then enjoy giving spin painting a whirl in the arts and crafts workshop, inspired by the many wheeled wonders of The Postal Museum, and create our own piece to take home.
We will explore the history of letter writing before composing our very own letter which we will set sail on the Thames on our way home, for another budding historian to find!
