A teaching class in the 1870 drawing room

The museum closed on 7 January 2018 for a two-year transformational re-development and is scheduled to reopen in early 2020. While the museum is closed the learning and engagement team will be embarking on an exciting outreach programme across a range of audiences. 

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.

The programme has been designed so that you can choose the objects and themes to best reflect your curriculum whether you are exploring a particular time period or how a certain theme has changed over time.
