Learning

Step back in time at Blaise House Museum, an 18th century mansion set in beautiful parkland. Once a family home, it’s now the ideal setting for learning about life in the past with displays of toys, costume and domestic objects.

We are now taking bookings for a new and exciting programme of school workshops. From science and literacy to drama and history… Blaise House Museum has it covered!

Be quick to reserve your school a session as we only have selective Autumn dates available. Contact us for further details.
