Learning brought to life


The museum is suitable for students of all ages and abilities, and a visit will provide a fantastic opportunity for your pupils to immerse themselves in history and science. The combination of stimulating settings and hands-on exhibitions will appeal to students of all learning styles. 

Explore the galleries at your own pace or choose from a range of talks and tours to complement your visit. Whatever you choose, the museum aims to make learning exciting, enjoyable and inspiring.
