Somerset Rural Life Museum Workshops
Our interactive museum workshops are available throughout the year. Workshops are all 90 minutes long 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.
Some of our museum workshops can be complemented by ordering related loans packs, which will help bring learning to life back in the classroom.
Rural Life Museum
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.
All our workshops are 90 minute long and usually run from 10.00 am - 11.30 am, and then 12.30 pm - 2.00 pm.
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 through the story of Somerset’s rich rural and social history. Self-guided trails can accompany a workshop to create a full day at the museum, or can be done independently. When booking a workshop, a self-guided visit can be added for free.
Teachers are welcome to make a pre-workshop site visit, in order to prepare more fully for your trip to the Somerset Rural Life Museum, please contact us using the information at the bottom of the page to arrange.
