Children can discover playtime for Victorian children with our toys

The Birmingham Back to Backs offers a Key Stage 1 workshop to compliment the curriculum taught in your classroom. Find out about what the day offers.

Interactive tour
One of our costumed tour guides will take your group through our two Victorian houses and courtyard where they'll hear about how people cooked, cleaned and slept.

As the children explore, they'll be encouraged to think about how our houses differ from their own. The groups will also have the opportunity to view our exhibition, which looks at the history of back-to-back houses in the city.

Toys and games
In the courtyard, children will have the opportunity to play the types of games that the children who lived in Victorian times would have enjoyed.

During this time, the group can also visit the traditional sweet shop.
