The Museum offers a range of educational activities, suitable for all ages.  On request we are very happy to tailor sessions to suit your needs.


We have prepared Museum visit sessions to suit all Key Stages. The sessions encourage hands-on learning and provide interaction with artefacts dating from pre-World War One right through to present day Afghanistan.


We welcome visits to the Museum by community groups of all ages and are often visited by Scouts, cadets, men’s and women’s social groups, charity branches and veterans. If you would like us to organise a dedicated educational session for your group, or simply to arrange a guided tour of the Museum, we would love to hear from you.
