Although the museum is currently closed, we are still keen to engage with schools and groups. We have developed a range of specialised online sessions and can also offer digital and/or outreach versions of our on-site learning sessions from early years to adult groups on Wednesdays and Fridays. Sessions typically last up to an hour and include practical and craft activities to do at home or at school, looking at objects or pictures of objects and a chance to ask questions. Contact Alison Giles, our learning coordinator, on to discuss how we can help you.
