School Visits

We love welcoming schools to Bodmin Keep

Learning about our heritage in an out-of-classroom environment is invaluable and can really make the subject come alive for the pupils. 

Our Museum is jam packed with fascinating artefacts and stories which link to the National Curriculum.  

Get hands on with History

We have uniforms to try on, a World War One Trench to explore and real life artefacts to touch and feel.

We believe that a museum visit should be memorable, fun and inspiring and our galleries tell stories that provoke discussion, challenge attitudes, and explore themes of conflict and humanity. 

 

School Sessions 

Topics cover World War One, World War Two & The Siege of Lucknow

Our Museum led sessions all link to the National Curriculum and cover all key stages.
