Its latest innovation is backpacks. They are available at the reception desk for hire. The cost is just £1 and there are lots of fun activities in the backpack for families to do together.

Judith Simmonds, school’s liaison officer at the Lynn museum, designed the backpacks and said: “They are perfect for the summer holidays and offer a unique museum experience for children focusing on the senses and making learning fun.

“This project would not have been possible without the support and funding by The William Cleave Charitable Trust.”

The backpack is suitable for all ages and children will receive acertificate when they return it. Activities include:

· Guessing games

· I Spy

· Mystery objects

· Play with Victorian toys

· Senses trail
