Whether you’re studying the Egyptians or Victorians, visiting Ipswich Museum or Christchurch Mansion, our schools sessions and museums inspire children to look, investigate, compare and question their ideas about the world around them.

The wide range of collections provide endless possibilities to explore any area of learning, whether you want to plan your own visit or take part in one of our active museum sessions.
