Activities may include the following:

  • Timeline work
  • Brass rubbing
  • Question and answer time
  • Role play
  • Sound making
  • Meeting 'Jack Lake'

All our workshops can be adapted for various groups with special education needs. The workshops are designed to be very flexible and we can focus on any area you are studying in school. A visit to the museum is an educational yet fun day out for kids of all ages and we look forward to hearing from you.
