Our museum provides a fascinating insight into the history of our area, through our collection of objects and artworks. As well as offering workshops for primary schools, we also offer visits to the museum for groups of older students, English Language schools and adults.

A self-led tour of the museum for groups of KS3 & 4 students and English Language students can be booked through our Education Department and costs £2 per student.

We have a trail designed specifically for English Language and older students, which can be requested at the reception desk. We also have museum guides in many languages. Please inform the Education Officer about which languages you require when making a booking.
