The Museum’s Changing Gallery will be transformed into a Medieval Castle, complete with drawbridge, towers and a throne room!
-Within the Castle Proper there is a Medieval Kitchen where visitors can prepare a feast of roasted capon and eel pie for the King’s table, then gather vegetables and honey in the Castle Garden.
-Explore the Inner Bailey, with its castle forge where the smith makes iron fittings for the castle and repairs armor. Next, a visit to the Queen’s Chamber, where they can try on gowns, read an Illuminated Manuscript, and experience what sleeping on a rope bed felt like.
-A trip to the Apothecary may be in order, to purchase medicinal herbs to cure the ague.
-Young squires can dress up and practice their archery and swordsmanship in order to become knights, and then sit upon an armored steed for a photo op in the stables.  
-In the Throne Room, little visitors can try on a crown and sit on a throne, then learn about heraldry and coats-of-arms, and see portraits of famous kings and queens of old.
