Visits to the Museum.
 Come and see our wide range of child-friendly exhibits and the hands-on activities in our children’s corner. We have enough space in the museum for a whole class of children at a time. We can do short whole class sessions and split your class into groups for investigations and other practical tasks.

Costumes & Artefacts
We have children’s costumes from different historical periods and artefacts to handle.
We have recently planned visits on specific topics such as Toys and Games for KS1, Settlements for KS2 and the River Adur for KS3.We also offer historical skills sessions for all ages.
