Learning Activities for Schools and Groups

In the welcoming surroundings of the Museum, we are able to offer a variety of activities to support individual and group learning. Our activities tend to be hands-on and most make use of incredible heritage buildings.

To find out about our activities for school groups and early years groups, download our new Learning Activities brochure.

We take the safety of groups and young people at the Museum seriously. Find our Risk Assessments for groups here.

To celebrate the launch of our new and engaging education offer for 2018/2019, all teachers are invited to visit Ryedale Folk Museum free of charge, for the day, from Saturday 21 July to Tuesday 31 July 2018.
