They are led by Vicky, our Learning Officer, who has over fifteen years of experience of working with schools in museums

Hands on History Workshops
All of the workshops use the Museum’s handling collection, which contains real and replica objects which really help your pupils connect with your topic.
History Craft Workshops
In these workshops, we use objects from the Museum’s collections as inspiration for a craft project which your pupils take home as a unique souvenir of their visit.
