University and adult education groups

Wessex Archaeology at work in the archive

Mr Straw's House is perfectly suited to university and adult education groups.

A visit can be tailored to your needs - whether researching in our archives or studying our interior design.

School visits

Mr Straw's House provides students with the opportunity to step back in time to the early 20th century. An education visit really does bring the past to life here, as students are surrounded by objects from the Victorian and Edwardian eras onwards.

We welcome visits from primary and secondary schools, as well as university groups. Get in touch to discuss your group's requirements - call us on 01909 482380.

Primary schools can enjoy a fun-packed day covering a wide range of subjects.

Call us to discuss how your primary group can get the most out of a visit to Mr Straw's House.

Secondary schools

Take your secondary school group back in time at Mr Straw's House.

All kinds of 20th-century topics can be covered - life during World War I or II to name just one.
