The museum is suitable for all ages, but you might wish to warn children there are figures in some of the exhibits to enhance the experience and atmospheric lighting.
There are lots of interactive elements: from a touchscreen; videos to choose from; smells to try; a feast to sit at; a throne to regally perch upon and a four poster bed to lie on. You can take part in a written witch trial; go in the stocks or try your hand at quill writing in the school room.
Master Shakespeare has come back through time and will guide you through his beloved town of Stratford upon Avon.
Ghost tours take place after the museum is closed and the lights switched off! The live guide will relate stories and sightings within the building by lantern light.
