Day Camp Tour

This morning we led a tour of about 20 children around the Museum.

When we got to the telegraph, we thought we’d quiz the kids on Morse Code.

“Can anyone guess the name of the code used to send telegraph messages?”

One girl put up her hand. “Braille?”

“Sorry, no, that’s what blind people use to read. I’ll give you a clue. It starts with an M.”

A little boy yelled out “Malaysian!”

When we got to the parlour, everyone thought our floral arrangement looked like it was lifted from the movie Beauty and the Beast:
