Family Friendly Museum In Redlands

A Family Friendly Museum On Our Doorstep

A museum in Redlands has been short-listed as one of the best in the UK for families.

The Museum of English Rural Life (MERL) in Redlands Road has made the top 20 long-list for the annual family-friendly museums award.

the Kids In Museums organisation says of MERL “There’s a large, welcoming family space as you walk in, with comfy sofas, activity tables, backpacks to take around with you and games to take into the garden.

Lots of nooks and crannies with odd farming machines and implements, film clips about dying-out crafts, challenging displays about food miles as well as traditional displays of fascinating and gruesome items from the past."
