Amberley Museum And Heritage Centre

Yesterday we visited Amberley Museum with some home educating friends. This was our first visit and it was fantastic! Hannah loved everything about the whole day! There were vintage trains, buses, fire engines, telephones, televisions, wood turning, stone works, just about everything, and  all set in a disused chalk quarry. Plus, we got to spend most of the day with our lovely friends from The Gallivanters so that made it even more fun for Hannah!

The man in the printing workshop taught Hannah how to make a printing block of her name, and then he gave it to her as a gift - she was so pleased.

She then learnt how to use it to print a card.

We all learnt so much yesterday about the industrial heritage of the local area and we saw so many things that Hannah had only heard or read about (record players, televisions with NO REMOTE!!, telephone exchanges, telegrams) . The staff were really helpful and knowledgeable, and more importantly - very child friendly - it's a really great place and we will definitely be going again.
