There is always plenty to see and do in our museums! For more information, download our Youth Group Visit Pack or contact Wendy Hunwick-Brown, Volunteer and Visits Coordinator email@example.com or telephone 01765 690799
Included in the pack is a list of permanently available, FREE hands-on activities so that you can gauge how much time you will need at each museum and what size groups you need to break your pack into. The Prison & Police Museum, in particular, has small spaces (cells!) and we recommend 8 or less per group, each with a leader.
Guided activities may be available midweek by prior arrangement: Availability is limited and will depend on what other activities are taking place and on availability of staff. Please ask us about:
Workhouse: schoolroom, rag rugging, role-play, granny’s cures
Prison and Police Museum: guided tour
Courthouse: acting out a historic court case
Prices dependant upon numbers and museums visited
