Education

It’s time to get your pupils out of the classroom for a unique and memorable learning experience at the Royal Armouries.

Tailored to meet the demands of the new history curriculum, our sessions will enhance the study of key periods and chronology.

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.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students.
