A look at the Tudors at Saffron Walden Museum
PUBLISHED: 15:07 07 January 2011
THE winter exhibition season kicks off at the Saffron Walden Museum with Tudors and Early Stuarts – an exhibition of life during Tudor times, 1485-1603.
Created and toured by the Epping Forest District Museum, this exhibition explores a period of great change in English society, in particular developments in the arts, sciences, politics, fashion and religion. Of course no Tudor story is complete without delving into the relationships between Henry VIII and his six wives.
This look at Tudor life in the East of England is supported by objects from the Saffron Walden Museum collection, and features original documents written and signed by Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, as well as a book from the personal library of Saffron Walden’s most prominent Tudor scholar and writer Gabriel Harvey.
With a range of fun hands-on activities, this exhibition offers something for all ages.
Tudors and Early Stuarts – An exhibition of life during Tudor times, 1485 – 1603 runs until March 20.
Usual entrance charges apply: adults £1.50; discounts 75p and children (18 and under) free, with annual season tickets available at £5 and £2.50.
