Do you know how to wrap an egg, weigh out goods on a scale or count in pounds and shillings?

In Playing Shop, children become shopkeepers and get behind the counter of Susannah Place’s re-created c1915 corner shop.

Activities include: 

  • Using an old-fashioned shop scale
  • Packaging up goods, including making a paper cone for the lollies you will be taking home
  • Filling an order and making a ‘delivery’
  • Writing up orders on a slate board
  • Creating your own dolly peg shopkeeper 

Please note:

Suitable for ages 5+

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

In the program some parts of the houses will be visited, however full guided tours of the museum are available at 2pm, 3pm & 4pm at an additional cost on the day.
