What better way to spend the school holiday than celebrating Queen Victoria's 200th birthday.

Children who visited Windsor Museum at the Guildhall on Tuesday got the chance to learn how Victoria celebrated her golden and diamond jubilees - as they made their own three-dimensional figures recreating the great days when the present queen's great great grandmother was on the throne.

The Victorian theme will carry on throughout the month every Tuesday at the museum.

Next Tuesday children will learn about Victorian photography, the days of sepia toned pictures, long exposure and remembering to stand still.

On Tuesday, August 13 they can discover the most horrible jobs given to children in the Victorian Royal Borough. On Tuesday, August 20 it is 'all aboard' for a journey of discovery tracking down the railways of the Royal Borough, while on August 27 there will be a chance to become a museum curator for the day and discover the wonders of the Victorian age through an object handling session.

The sessions run from 10.30am to 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 3.30pm. Just drop in - it costs £2 a child, £1 with an Advantage Card and one accompanying adult free. You can call the museum on 01628 685686 or follow on Twitter:@Windsor_Museum
