We offer a range of primary school sessions to engage and inspire children to explore the wealth of historical and cultural influences which affect our homes and lives today. All our schools sessions are led by the museum's experts, and our small scale and direct approach make us very accessible for school groups of all types, ages and abilities, including special schools.
