Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum is located within the former home of the Wield Family, in a bungalow near to the Spa Baths and Kinema. It houses the extensive photographic archive of Johnny Wield which provides a rich insight into local life during the early part of the twentieth century.
Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum exists to preserve the community history of Woodhall Spa and is run entirely by volunteers from the local community.
KS1 and KS2
Pupils can explore our unique and welcoming Victorian family home decorated for a Victorian Christmas, and discover how Christmas was celebrated in late Victorian and early Edwardian times. Pupils will be met by costumed volunteers and can have fun dressing up themselves. They can use photographs to learn more about the children who lived here.
This two hour cross-curricular workshop will include the opportunity to play with traditional toys and games and compare toys and games past and present. Finally, pupils can make a Victorian style gift or decoration which they can take back to school.
