CHILDREN learnt all about history through fun and games at an event organised by the Museum of East Anglian Life.

Families went along last week to a Victorian day, to play games and get involved in historical activities, including playing croquet and cricket.

Youngsters could also get hands on with toys and games, such as draughts and hoop and a stick.

They also got the chance to have a go with a Victorian printing press and learn about the art of decoupage.

The event was held at the museum in Stowmarket, during half term, to keep youngsters entertained.

Jo Rooks, museum learning officer, said families went along to try out historic games and activities at an event which was ‘hands on for all the family’.
