31st October - "International Year of the Periodic Table"
10am - 2pm
Chemistry is at the centre of everything you can see, smell, touch and taste.
A children's hands on science event to celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table with the Essex Section of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Come along and learn how to make sherbet, experiment with a lemon battery, build a molecule and much more.
In 1986 Pupils from Glebe School created A Domesday Tapestry for a competition to illustrate the basic reasons for the making of the Domesday Book. Over 300 children were involved in its creation.
It is now on display in the museum for a limited period.
Included with the tapestry and associated papers and albums the Museum holds the individual names of many of the children who took part. Perhaps one of them is reading this now, or perhaps you know someone who was at Glebe in 1986. If so we would love to hear from you as we may have your original drawing or photo during the making of the tapestry, if so please get in touch and pop in and see us, and tell us your personal memories.
We have Noel Beer's book When the Railway came to Rayleigh on sale for £4
We have a new range of merchandise, come in and take look. More pictures soon.
