- About us
Come to Ripon Museums for high-quality learning experience which stimulates pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop judgement. We are lucky to have three museums in our group, all important Victorian institutions: a Workhouse, a Prison and Police Station and a Courthouse, all in their original buildings. Our workshops make the most of this atmospheric environment with dramatic role-play and hands-on activities.
Our GCSE and A Level offers are laid out below. For a fuller explanation of what we do, please download our GCSE and A Level pdfs.
