We aim to provide educational opportunities for all age groups, from young children and students to adults and the elderly, through visits made to the museum or by coming to you with our outreach materials.
Our exhibitions cover a wide range of local history.
We can provide a volunteer member of our team to support a focus for your visit or facilitate a general exploration.
We can offer outreach visits to your school or setting, where we will bring artefacts to share with your learners.
Loan boxes containing artefacts and replicas are available for teachers and providers to borrow on a weekly basis.
