Learning Hub

Families, Schools, and Group Visits

Discover Oliver Cromwell's life and times through our exciting programme of workshops, tours, virtual sessions, and activities available for all ages and backgrounds.

Learning Hub

We bring 17th century history to life for students, groups, and families through engaging workshops (both in-person and virtually!), events, and activities. Meet a civil war soldier, try on armour, explore real artefacts and documents, all while discovering how Oliver Cromwell rose from humble origins in Huntingdonshire to shape the history of an entire country.

We welcome:

  • Primary and secondary school groups
  • Home-schooled groups
  • Youth groups, such as Scouts and Guides
  • Students studying Museum Studies, Heritage Management, or tourism
  • University students and researchers
  • Tour groups, historical societies, and coach tours
  • Families
