Cornwall's Regimental Museum

Schools

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.

We provide museum visits that make the most of being in our historic building and offer close contact with our collection, including handling historic material, story-telling and drama, creative writing and art.  We have a large room available for lunch and workshops.
