Learning Outside the Classroom

Lancashire Museums offer a wide range of inspiring and stimulating visits for you and your pupils. From an introduction to the Viking way of life by a Viking warrior at Lancaster Maritime Museum, to a lesson as a Victorian half-timer at Queen Street Mill, or a potted history of 1066 at Clitheroe Castle, you are sure to find something that will complement and enhance your teaching.
