Topics

Please refer to the document at the bottom of the page for information about the topics we have on offer at our different sites.

Choose the type of visit you want

See for yourself - enjoy a teacher-led visit where you decide what you want to see and do.

Enhance your teacher-led visit with an activity run by museum educators. Choose from:

Hands on History - an opportunity to handle real museum objects and to get to know the museum collections.

Experience the Past - hands on activities and a chance to meet costumed characters.

Live It! - a package of activities led by costumed characters held on specific days of the year when we invite you and your students to come along dressed in period costume.

Outreach - some activities can be delivered in school.

Talk to learning team staff at the museum of your choice to discuss developing a tailor made package to suit your curriculum needs.

English as an additional language (ESOL)

Information for tutors and leaders [click here], and materials for tutors and students [click here], can be downloaded.

Youth Engagement

We believe that everybody should have the chance to access their local museums. Our Youth Engagement projects aim to use visual arts, drama and film making as tools to explore local history and the museums collections. We work with everyone from under 5s to older people.

Groups we have worked with in the past Include, Action for Children, Surestart, Homestart, the Cinda Project and the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind. Local community groups can book visits to Lynn Museum and Ancient House for free.

Attending a Family Learning Numeracy Course is what encouraged me to get a job…It gave me the confidence.

We had a broad spectrum of ability (amongst the pupils) and the visit catered for all of these and gave us a few surprises – i.e. the children who asked and answered questions were not necessarily the ones we expected.
