Key Stage 2

Coming to the London Museum of Water & Steam allows your class to see the power of the Industrial Revolution in a genuine Victorian pumping station.

These sessions cover topics such as; local history, changes and developments in scientific ideas and the causes, significances and consequences of historical events. Sessions are challenging and highly interactive, with pupils engaged in experiments, investigating sources and role play.

Key Stage 2 visits take place from 10:00 to 14:00 and cost £180.00 (Summer Term 2022) or £200 (Autumn Term 2022 onwards) per a class of up to 30 children. As we are a small museum, we are only able to accommodate a maximum of 60 pupils per day.

Children will explore, using real museum objects, how the Victorians did their clothes washing. They will consider the effort involved and how machinery, through time, has changed and automated the process.
