Mrs Mahoney was the wife of the museum caretaker in the 1850s, who was sacked for embezzling money. The Mahoney family lived in the museum cellar and had to leave their home.
The class will have the chance to meet Mrs Mahoney who shares her sad story in costume and character. The story is illustrated through many historic objects. The children will see her trunk of things she is packing, which will show the difference between her way of life and theirs and how technology has moved on and developed.
