Local History Mystery Mission
90 mins, KS2
Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
We need your help. We have found a bag of mysterious objects belonging to an unknown person from Brighton’s past.
We have some clues to help us, but we need to go off into the streets of Brighton to find the answers. We have been told the answers are all about the history of Brighton from a small fishing village to the busy city of today.
Once we solve the all the clues we hope to find out even more about the person in the galleries of Brighton Museum.
