AboutStep back in time this Christmas at Swindon's Railway Village Museum.
Have you ever wondered when crackers were invented, or when we first started sending Christmas cards, or when Christmas trees first became popular?
Find out more about the origins of these Christmas traditions and more at the Railway Village Museum this Christmas. Learn about the families who lived in this former railway worker's cottage and how they might have celebrated Christmas in the late Victorian period. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of a Victorian Christmas as you explore the museum, then head to the Baker's café across the road for refreshments.
Christmas craft sessions will be running all weekend and you can try making Victorian decorations, crackers and Christmas cards to share with friends and family. Don't miss the robin trail around the museum.
