The Museum offers a wide range of taught workshops for all Key Stages, based on the National Curriculum. Workshops are led by education officers, who encourage pupils to handle and learn from Museum artefacts.

For each workshop there is a session outline (including learning outcomes, suggested pre-visit, and post-visit activities).

Workshops need to be booked well in advance as they are very popular. Schools may also visit without participating in our education programme, but must still book in advance.

Guided trails

Guided trails combine an interactive tour with a facilitated activity to highlight key Museum objects.
