Please read our October Learning newsletter for more latest news.


Are you teaching and learning about ancient Egypt, prehistory, ancient Greece, the Romans or the Anglo-Saxons in your school? You can now book a ‘virtual visit’ into your classroom by a Museum Learning expert who can answer your children’s questions and share a related object from our collections. Please email us to find out more and to book.
