Workshops at the Museum
From Pre-History to World War Two, we offer a range of hands on, cross curricular workshops to really help your pupils engage with the past.
All of the workshops focus on local case studies and are led by Learning Officer, who has over ten years of experience of working with schools in museums. So you can sit back, and enjoy the workshop with your class!
Workshops are only £2.50 per student for LBRuT Schools, £3.50 per student for non-LBRuT schools.

Please Note: We often have learning workshops which start before the Museum opens to the public, which means the exhibition areas will be busy before 12noon.
On 17 July, there will be a school group visiting the Museum all day. If you wish to visit the Museum especially for the Archaeology exhibition, we strongly recommend that you visit another day – thank you.
