Fun Fridays and Super Saturdays at Hackney Museum

Visit Hackney Museum to learn about life in Hackney with our fun hands-on activities on Fun Fridays and Super Saturdays.

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.

The activities are available every Friday and Saturday 10am to 4.30pm.

All children must be supervised by a responsible adult.
