Planning your school or group visit

Blaise Museum is set in a late 18th century mansion, surrounded by the beautiful parkland of Blaise Castle estate.

Weird and wonderful objects show how people used to live, including domestic appliances, toys and costume.

Bring your class and let the past come alive before getting up close to nature!
