Educational Visits

Cornwall’s Regimental Museum is the perfect place for schools or other educational visits. We can offer a range of sessions in line with the National Curriculum. These include topics covering the Siege of Lucknow, WWI and WWII, and sessions can be tailored to your needs. For more information or to book a visit, please download and complete the booking form at the bottom of this page and return to [email protected]

Our galleries tell many stories that provoke discussion, challenge attitudes, and explore themes of conflict and humanity.  The museum warmly welcomes a wide variety of young people of different abilities and interests.  We believe that a museum visit should be memorable, fun and inspiring.  We can provide activities for schools at all key stages and we offer flexible cross-curricular resources to suit each school.
