Adult Group Outreach

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.

For each talk charges will now be
Cost per session £50 plus travel costs if over 20 miles from Malton
