Schools & Education

During the last few months we have devised new theme/interactive based days for our education programme provided at the museum, which we deliver to local schools and these are proving very popular.

The programmes cover various topics from Buildings through to A Victorian Christmas and can be delivered as a full day programme to include lunch or on a pick and mix basis of two-hour sessions.

Below we have set out details of the programmes available together with a link to an application form.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact The Helena Thompson Museum.
