Museum events

Summer holiday activities at Hackney Museum

Visit Hackney Museum throughout the summer holidays to learn about life in Hackney with our fun hands-on activities.

You can live like Anglo-Saxons and load the Saxon boat or try some fishing; learn about Victorian toys and try on historical costumes; find out how people travelled in and around Hackney by being a bus driver on a number 38 bus or play with our special train track and be a train driver.

All children must be supervised by a responsible adult.

This is my life: panel event 4th August 2022

Join Hackney Museum for a panel event, with guest speakers who are care experienced and who came to the UK to seek safety. This is an opportunity to hear first hand about the experiences of young people from different countries, coming to the UK seeking sanctuary.
