Take a tour
Step into another time and get to know the families who lived here through their house, their things and their stories. What did they eat, play, do without refrigerators and electric lights, and how did their lives change with them?
You can only visit the house in a guided tour, which lasts for about an hour, starting at 11am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Meet at the Visitor Centre in the backyard.
