The museum is a wonderful educational resource, which we are keen to share with schools and the whole community.

The museum can cater for a wide range of educational purposes, from Primary classes, to Sixth Form study groups, to Special Needs. It is of obvious appeal to those studying the history of the English Civil War, World War I, World War II, or the Cold War, but it can also provide the stimulus for areas of study as diverse as Creative Writing, Art & Design, and Travel & Tourism.

The museum is also available for adult groups, such as U3A, Probus or WI, and talks on areas of particular interest can be arranged.

Teachers and group leaders are welcome to visit the museum, to discuss their group’s requirements. Programmes of study can also be arranged with the museum staff.

An out-reach programme is also available, whereby the museum can visit you.

Large groups, who visit on Monday or Tuesday during term time, can have the museum all to themselves.

The museum is an amazing facility that we have sitting on our doorstep, with the staff who are happy and willing to do educational projects with the young people in our community. I would highly recommend a visit or participation in one of their programmes. A great and interesting day out!
