Family Fun at Moseley Old Hall
Whether you want to discover what life would have been like in this 17th century farmhouse, put your culinary skills to the test in the mud kitchen, or climb to the top of our 3-storey treehide there is plenty here at Moseley Old Hall to keep your family entertained.
Inside the Hall
Keep your little ones entertained as you walk around the Hall by following the sheep trail. Mr Whitgreave has lost his sheep - little does he know they’ve hidden themselves in the hall! Can you spot all seven on your journey around the house?
On selected days you will be able to visit our costumed room guides, discover gruesome 17th century medicines or join in with traditonal parlour games.
There is plenty to do around our outdoor spaces to help you get to know nature.
With den building, the mud kitchen, our turf labyrinth and of course the tree hide there are lots of ways for you to enjoy the experiences offered by the great outdoors and go home feeling happy tired.
