Included in the price of a standard exhibition ticket, families can enjoy a range of activities including live sword fighting demonstrations, Elizabethan costume dressing and printing demonstrations using a full-size recreation of a 17th Century printing press.

Live demonstrations include sword fighting that explores Elizabethan stage combat and costume dressing which uses clothes from the Globe Theatre wardrobe to explain the intricacies of dressing actors and the significance of clothing to Elizabethan society. Printing demonstrations are available using a full-size recreation of a 17th-century printing press and show how Shakespeare's plays were presented by his contemporaries, sometimes imperfectly, and ultimately preserved for future generations.
