Learning is an integral part of what the museum has to offer. Our learning programme is designed to be informative, engaging hands-on and fun. It is strongly linked to our collection and will enable people to participate in a wide range of creative experiences.

The programme is divided into three areas:


We run events for children and adults at the museum – see Workshops + Events.


We work with schools, colleges and further education establishments – see Pre-Schools, Primary Schools and Secondary Schools for more information. We also offer a bespoke programme for colleges and further education establishments. Please email or call (01273) 844744 for further details.


We work outside the museum with community groups – see outreach for more information.
