Quackery Children’s Trail

Quackery Children’s Trail

Family fun trail linked to our new temporary exhibition ‘Quackery & Enlightenment – A journey through Georgian medicine’. You will learn all about what your doctor may have given you to make you feel better 250 years ago, before the Internet had been invented. Which foods could cure you? Who was William Buchan? Trail includes a word search, space to draw a picture and to write in fancy writing.  Discover what kind of things were bought for the poor children from our very old record books.

Exhibition and trail will run throughout 2021 during usual opening times.  Details of our exhibition HERE.
Price: £1.00 and includes and prize.

Finish date: 22nd December 2021
