Ragged School Museum
Based in canalside warehouses which once housed Barnardo's largest ragged school, this museum focuses on the history of the East End and, in particular, the Copperfield Road Ragged School. It includes a reconstructed Victorian classroom, along with information on housing, education and work in the East End from the 1880s to 1900. There's a regularly changing programme of exhibitions and activities for families and children.
