Learn

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new education programmes for KS2 and KS3 pupils at both Fort Nelson and Leeds.

We have designed our sessions to provide a more interactive and hands on experience for pupils allowing history to come life in an exciting and meaningful way.

Sessions will take place in our dedicated education centres and in the museum galleries amongst the collection pieces.

Closely linked to the National Curriculum and the needs of schools, we know our new offerings will be of interest to you.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students.
