Feedback from teachers

Great hands-on visit. The children really enjoyed interacting with the resources.
LKS2 teacher/ Head-teacher. 2016 (Roman Legacy)

Very well pitched and appropriate level. Well, organised – all children were well engaged. Informative, supported and extended the children’s learning. Yr 3 teachers 2016.


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.
