Ely Museum offers an extensive range of workshops for schools and learning organisations. From Prehistory to modern day farming in the Fens we accommodate a wide breadth of the national curriculum.

Handle real objects, meet costumed reenactors, have a go at ancient art, participate in a courtroom drama, sing songs and listen to stories or  even put on a virtual reality headset and go time-travelling! Ely Museum offers a range of learning experiences to appeal to learners of all types and support teaching in the classroom.

Visit our brand new museum or we can come to your school either in person or virtually with our new Virtual Visits.

All workshops can be customised to suit your needs. Scroll down for more information.

Workshops at Ely Museum

If you are studying history or geography, Ely Museum probably has a workshop for you. Have a go at ancient art in our Prehistory workshop, meet a Roman legionnaire or an Anglo Saxon warrior, play with Victorian toys, listen to traditional fenland tales, become a World war 2 evacuee – whatever your historical period (almost!), Ely Museum can bring the past to life for your class. Ely and the Fens have a rich heritage. Most of our workshops tell a unique local story which helps children relate to and appreciate the area they live in.
See below for a full list of our workshops.
