Learning

The museum is now closed for a transformational re-development and is scheduled to reopen in early 2020. While the museum is closed the learning and engagement team will embark on an exciting outreach programme across a range of audiences. We hope that this work will enable us to keep in touch and give participants the opportunity to shape the development of our future workshops and sessions when we reopen. We very much look forward to engaging with you in this way and will update you about events and activities through our marketing, online and social media channels. 

Schools' Outreach Programme: Spring 2018 onwards

Our handling collection contains objects found in the home over the last 400 years and can be used to support classroom based learning across the curriculum at all key stages.

During our schools’ outreach sessions, experienced museum facilitators bring objects to your school and lead interactive sessions for your classes.

Choose from a one-off session for your own class or whole-school immersive experience with the Museum in Residence model.
