Great Yarmouth Museums go selfie mad over the half term break bringing the modern craze to one of the town’s oldest buildings.
Youngsters calling in at the Tolhouse Museum on Wednesday May 27 over the holidays can celebrate their visit by uploading a self-portrait with the gaoler and add it to the attraction’s Facebook page or tag them on Twitter.
The Tolhouse Museum opens Sunday, May 24 to Friday, May 29 and again on Sunday, May 31.
Meanwhile at the Time and Tide Museum visitors can meet a First World War soldier - also on Wednesday - and learn how to send signals to and from the trenches.
There will also be a chance to become a secret agent, learn about semaphore, Morse code, use of pigeons and secret codes.
