The Museum welcomes school groups of all ages and offers a series of gallery-based taught sessions that draw on unique collections spanning a variety of cultures from around the world.  All taught sessions support the National Curriculum and are tailored to specific key stages (Key Stage one, Key stage two, Key Stage three and Post-16). By using objects at the heart of their learning, students will obtain transferable skills, acquire new knowledge and become curious and inspired about their topic.
