Visitors to Wisbech Museum were welcomed by primary school children as part of a takeover day.

Year 5 pupils from Nene and Ramnoth School worked behind the scenes helping complete conservation cleaning of local social history exhibits with museum volunteer Ian.

They also wrote labels for Egyptian artefacts and came up with designs for a new Egyptian display.

Museum curator Robert Bell said: "We are delighted to have been able to take part in the Kids in Museums Takeover Day again.

"Year 5 were amazing and we thought there will be some wonderful museum curators of the future from this year group."
