The Ragged School Museum

The Award winning Museum is housed in three Victorian canalside warehouses, converted in 1877 by Dr Thomas Barnardo into a "ragged" or free school where children could gain a basic education.

The museum has several gallery areas, a reconstructed Victorian Classroom and a Victorian East End Kitchen displaying its own collection of historical objects, all designed for hands-on inspection. This is a museum where you can sit at the school desks, use the tin bath and experience what life was like for the Victorian poor of the East End of London.
