Getting Started

Opening and visit timings

The Museum is open to the public and education groups between 10am and 5pm, seven days a week every day throughout the year except Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

School visits are typically between 10am and 2pm, but the Learning Officer is happy to help you timetable your visit depending on your arrival and departure times.

Workshops and hands-on activities

We offer a range of curriculum workshops and hands-on learning activities for formal and informal education groups. Each programme can be carefully tailored to the needs of your group. We may also be able to ‘mix and match’ activities to your topic or programme of study. Please just ask.

Free planning visit for teachers and group leaders

Teachers and group leaders are welcome (and encouraged) to come and carry out a free planning visit to see how we can meet the aims of your visit and to assess the site. The Learning Officer is pleased to arrange a personal planning meeting whenever convenient.

Please book in advance by contacting Seth Hall, Education Officer, 01326 214535
