The museum offers a range of learning opportunities for all ages. Schools are welcome to explore the museum either through a self-guided visit, a specific workshop or activity or by borrowing a loan box.
Workshops focused on the Victorian period are ideal for KS1 and KS2. These sessions, lasting between 30-40 minutes, focus on taking a journey back in time to imagine what life was like for children in the nineteenth century. Pupils can experience a lesson in the Victorian schoolroom, discover how household tasks have changed through the washday demonstration and enjoy traditional pastimes with a variety of parlour games. Pupils also have the chance to dress up in period costume as part of their visit.
The museum can also run sessions for students studying for Travel and Tourism courses.
