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. We have risk assessments prepared for all activities.

New Activities for 2018/2019

We are launching some new learning activities for schools and groups from September 2018. They include a brand-new WW1 Experience Day, where children can learn what it was like to be a soldier. A new Anglo Saxon Farmers Day, will help children explore the techniques of winnowing and threshing corn, as well as exploring the home life of the period.
