As a child in the mid 50's I belonged to the Saturday morning museum club. Apart from talks on history we sometimes had a quiz in which we had to seek out various objects in the museum.
There would be about 30 of us and unsupervised we could access the museum from top to bottom. I belonged to terracotta team. Once we were taken to the curator's office where through a trap door in the wall we went down into the cellar a part of which was made to look like a dungeon in Rochester castle. Many fond memories of time spent there.
