Educational workshops

Since October 2017 when I started as the Schools Coordinator I have been busy creating educational workshops for Cumbrian schools visiting the museum.

The focus of learning is on the importance of the Railways in Cumbria from the 1800s to modern day and the significance of the Iron industries on the local and surrounding areas.

With fun activities surrounded by our museum’s objects we aim to inspire school children by making learning about their heritage engaging and exciting.

We are delighted to welcome the first few schools this month with our new educational service with many more being booked for rest of the school year.
