Homes when our grandparents were children

Hands–on workshop for KS1 at Ely Museum & Oliver Cromwell’s House.

Explore and compare homes from the 1940s/50s with our homes today.

Explore a 1950s kitchen and compare it with kitchens today. Do the washing with a tub and a mangle, try out old-fashioned gadgets, lay the table and join in a 1950s picnic tea.
