education leeds workshops



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 First World War or learning what it was like to be a musketeer and pikeman by participating in drills from the English Civil Wars.

If you wish, our workshops can be adapted to suit other key stages. Please speak to the bookings team to discuss your group’s requirements.
