Our sessions are currently under development, with greater links to the National Curriculum. You are welcome to email or call us on the details below to discuss your requirements. 

With a core focus on history and science, the Museum is a fantastic space for your pupils to discover an array of topics, from hitching a ride on our steam train to finding out about the real-life heroes of the industrial revolution! Bring your pupils along for a unique learning experience alongside our world-famous collection of working steam engines.

Our museum is ideal for primary schools, with educational sessions for Key Stages 1 & 2. Please click on the appropriate tab on the left to find your sessions!

For just £5.00 per pupil, schools and colleges can enjoy one of these guided sessions at this Learning Outside the Classroom accredited site plus a subject focussed tour with the Learning Coordinator and time to explore for themselves. Alternatively we offer a £3.00 per pupil charge for groups that wish to discover the Museum using some of our self-led resources. Please note that as we are a small museum, we can accommodate a maximum of 60 pupils per day.

Visits normally last from 10:00 until 14:00 and, once you have told us which sessions you would like, our Learning Coordinator will design a schedule to meet your school’s individual learning needs and outcomes.
