Leave the worksheets in the classroom and let your children explore all the experiences that a trip to the museum has to offer.


Museums are full of treasures, full of ideas, and full of opportunities. As teachers we are well aware of this potential, regularly coaxing our classes round museums in a bid to exploit the excitement and inspiration of the space and its artefacts. A study by Leicester University neatly highlights the most common expected outcomes of such visits:

  • Enjoyment, inspiration, creativity
  • Knowledge and understanding
  • Attitudes and values
