Interactive learning at the Museum
The Museum's Barn Gallery tells the story of the landscape through an interactive display with models and computers as well as objects to handle.
Hands-on at the Museum
Every summer we run our Archaeology Afternoons which capture childrens imagination and allow them to get close to history. Keep an eye on the Events page of the website to find out when these are running.
