School Visits to Ryedale Folk Museum

Welcome to Ryedale Folk Museum’s learning section.

Here you will find resources to help you explore three historic periods and themes:

Farming and settlement in the Iron Age

Daily life during Anglo Saxon times

Victorian childhood and school days

For each time period, you will find an interactive video to help you explore from your own classroom, as well as accompanying teacher notes and resources. They can be used as standalone teaching materials but have been designed to work well as pre-visit materials if you’re planning a trip to Ryedale Folk Museum.

Having recently reviewed our learning offer, we are not currently able to provide activities led by our staff and volunteers. Apologies if you have enjoyed our workshops in the past and are disappointed that these are not currently available. We would encourage you to look at the self-led materials instead and hope that you are able to experience what the Museum has to offer, both from your own classroom and through a self-led visit.

Booking your visit

You can book self-led visits to our site by emailing [email protected] or by calling 01751 417367.

The cost of a self-led group visit is £6 per child including VAT, with any accompanying adults visiting for free.

Groups must be pre-booked in order to qualify for the £6 per child rate.
