Museum of Somerset Workshops
Our interactive museum workshops are available throughout the year. Workshops are all 90 minutes long unless otherwise stated, and suitable for up to 35 pupils. We can adapt some of our workshops to suit different needs and age groups, so please ask if you have any special requirements.
Occasionally, we provide special workshops, projects and resources linked to events or temporary exhibitions.
Many of our museum workshops can be complemented by ordering related loans packs, which will help bring learning to life back in the classroom.
The Museum of Somerset
Tuesday to Friday
10.00am – 5.00pm
A maximum of 35 students can participate in each workshop, and we can facilitate two separate workshops per day.
Our 90 minute workshops usually run from 10.00 am - 11.30 am, and then 12.30 pm - 2.00 pm.
Whole-day workshops generally take place from 10.00 am - 2.00 pm, with an hour's break for lunch.
Lunch space can be provided free of charge with any booked workshop, or can be hired for £15.
We also offer the option of a self-guided visit to the museum. With our self-guided school trail, pupils can explore the museum's main galleries, and journey chronologically through the history of Somerset. Self-guided trails can accompany a workshop to create a full day at the museum, or can be done independently. All self-guided visits are free, but please complete the booking form and contact us to book.
Teachers are welcome to make a pre-workshop site visit, in order to prepare more fully for your trip to the Museum of Somerset, please contact us using the information at the bottom of the page to arrange.
