WE’VE GOT HISTORY SORTED

Pupils will come face-to-face with history at the home of the national collection of arms and armour.

Our education sessions take place in our dedicated learning centre and in the museum galleries amongst the collection.

Sessions are designed to provide a hands-on experience giving students the opportunity to explore and interact with the artefacts, whether this is examining surviving objects from the Second World War or learning what it was like to be a musketeer and pikeman by participating in drills from the English Civil Wars.

For more information about any of our workshops or to book please contact our Bookings Team:

No rust for the wicked

Wrought iron does not rust as quickly as cast iron. At Fort Nelson the ‘Boxted Bombard’, a large medieval cannon made of wrought iron, is still in good condition despite being left outdoors and unprotected for hundreds of years.
