School and Group Visits

Our learning sessions and resources for schools have been planned in line with the needs of the National Curriculum, and cover a number of curriculum areas, including loan resources that can be used in the classroom. We also welcome groups who are studying Heritage Management, Tourism or are thinking about the importance of heritage and museums in our society.

The Cromwell Museum offers fun and engaging learning experiences for all ages, satisfying many different areas of interest. We have an amazing collection of objects in our care that can be used to explore the life and times of Oliver Cromwell in a variety of ways and at different levels. This is a key part of our work as an independent charity, working with schools, community groups, and organised tours to bring this fascinating character and period to life. We have close links with other museums nearby and in Cambridge, and share planning and delivery of events. We are an Arts Award Centre and can support schools with advice about their own activities, as well as organising our own.

We pride ourselves on being flexible with our learning programme, tailoring our sessions to your needs. Our volunteer re-enactors are often able to join us for schools sessions and bring in depth knowledge to their conversations with young learners. We do find that smaller groups gain most from these experiences, and have a town trail based on John Speed’s map of 1610. This  can be used by half the class when the other group is with the staff in the museum.
