Hands on History Workshops
From Pre-History to World War Two, we offer a range of hands on, cross curricular workshops to help your pupils engage with the past.
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
Want to help your pupils get more creative whilst learning more about your history topic? We have just the thing!
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.
Keep up to date with what is going on at the Museum!
Usual opening hours: Tuesday to Fridays, 11am to 5pm and Saturdays, 10am to 4pm.
The Museum will be closed on Saturday 24th June whilst we host our annual Garden Party at Trumpeters’ House.
Regular workshops for schools, families and adults are held in our temporary exhibition area, during which times it may be too busy to view the current exhibition. Please contact us in advance if you would like to know what activities are planned at the Museum for the day of your visit.
