Workshops

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.

Did you know?

Is newer better?

The last cast-iron British smoothbore cannon – the 68 pounders – were the same calibre (8 inches) as the heaviest guns of King Henry VIII three hundred years earlier. Their performance was probably not very different either!
