The Museum Service aims to improve access to its collections in many ways. We are regularly developing new educational programmes for both sites and outreach services.
We would welcome any comments and suggestions from you.
Support for learning
Visits to museums provide both leisure opportunities and learning experiences. Support for both formal education, continuing personal development and lifelong learning are important aspects of our work.

Museums hold major sources of primary evidence required for much of the National Curriculum. Teachers are invited to work with relevant collections and to make free preliminary visits to our museum sites. Children learn best through direct contact with real objects and specimens. Special educational sessions will be offered to schools following the National Curriculum guidelines.
Out and about
One of the ways we try to make our collections accessible to all is to take objects and supporting information out into the community. Have a look at our Museum in a Box section. Some of these loans are to other local groups and organisations. Many of our events are run jointly with other service providers.
