Sharing our collection is at the heart of everything we do. Our learning team is happy to visit local libraries, support groups, WIs and adult interest groups, taking objects out as part of the outreach service. We encourage groups to combine our visit with a follow-up trip to the museum. We are willing to discuss individual requirements for a group and will produce a tailor-made session where applicable.
Download our Talking History leaflet to find out more about the adult outreach activities the Museum can bring to your group.
