Learning with Lancashire Museums

Welcome to the new Simply Schools programme for the 2016/17 school year! This year, Simply Schools offers a greater range of partner museums than ever before, including some wonderful museums and galleries in Cumbria.

At Lancashire Museums we want you and your pupils to love museums just as much as we do! Our aim is to give pupils the opportunity to explore and appreciate Lancashire's rich heritage through access to our unique collections and stimulating sites.

We offer:

  • Fascinating places to explore and real historical objects to see and touch.
  • The chance to be inspired and encouraged to think creatively during one of our practical school sessions.
  • Active participation in new and unique experiences with our programme of special events, which are based on a variety of themes and hosted by many of our sites throughout the year.
  • Museum loan boxes to use in the classroom in order to enhance and complement learning sessions.
  • Risk assessed activities and trained staff with enhanced DBS certificates 
     

School sessions can be tailored to complement your curriculum. We work closely with teachers to meet individual needs and reinforce classroom learning.

At our museums, we make sure teachers and adults on school trips visit us for FREE (except at Lancaster Castle, where a reduced admission price is offered).

Teachers are also invited to make a FREE preliminary site visit to all of our sites – please telephone the site to arrange your visit.
