12 Hazards of Christmas Tour

Wed, 1 December 2021 - Fri, 24 December 2021

In December, join us on a very special tour of our iconic Disease Street and follow the everyday hazards Victorians faced!

Along the way, you’ll encounter scenes of festive splendour but upon closer inspection, we’ll reveal the dangers to health many faced during their lives. From the meat in mince pies to cheese before pasteurisation was commonplace, through to sanitation and medicines of the time – it’s a miracle anyone made it to Christmas!

There is capacity limit on this tour of 15 people and tours will take place daily after midday. The tour is included in your entry ticket and you can sign up at the front desk when you arrive.
