A visit to this Sandford Award winning museum is a step back in time for learners of all ages. Through role-play and immersive learning, pupils can discover over 1000 years of history in this castle location and intriguing stories of Worcestershire’s past.
Whether it’s a lesson with the school teacher in the Victorian Schoolroom, or meeting the servants in the Scullery, children will find out first-hand what life was really like in historic Worcestershire. From costume to caravans, travel to toys there is something for all ages to explore.
Our museum offers competitive prices for school trips when compared to similar museum and heritage sites in the area. Teachers are also invited to a free pre-visit to the site before a booking and a discussion with our learning team to ensure we meet your learning objectives.
