A fun packed day of living history will celebrate Gloucester City Museum’s official opening this September.
Being held on Gloucester Day on Saturday 3 September 2011, from 10am to 5pm, the free event will be held behind the City Museum on the bowling green next to Constitution Walk.
Visitors can expect to see and interact with people from the Iron Age, World War II and Roman times, according to organisers, as well as chat to a Victorian family and see what gruesome services the medieval barber surgeon has to offer.
Sponsored by BBC Learning as part of this summer’s Dig 360 season, two raised archaeological digs will also be set up for families to have a go at digging up and identifying objects they have found, with county archaeologist Anna Morris on hand to help out.
There’s also set to be old and new games to be played, themed craft activities, and local expert Kurt Adams will be identifying historic objects visitors have found at home, with real and replica objects from throughout history on show.
Inside the fully refurbished Gloucester City Museum, meanwhile, don’t miss the chance to explore the new-look venue, with a new interactive sculpture exhibition and a themed menu in Café Nerva also on offer – and the official ribbon cutting by Time Team expert Phil Harding at 2.45pm.
