Planning a School Visit to Alcester Roman Museum

Sorry but there are no slots available for school visits until the Autumn Term.

The education programme format has changed. A pack of resources has been developed by our education team to enable teachers to deliver the sessions successfully themselves.

The pack includes children’s workbooks, comprehensive teaching notes and all the resources needed for an enjoyable and worthwhile visit to the Museum. We can also give you access to a fun video of an imaginary day in the life of Roman Alcester,

For details, available dates and costs please contact Barbara Swinn on

The Museum offers a fascinating and interesting “hands – on” opportunity for your pupils which can cover several National Curriculum areas. A day’s visit could introduce pupils to: History units 6A and 18 as well as Citizenship units 5 and 10. If you are already adjusting your planning to be in line with the new primary curriculum then this visit will fit in with many of the skills required.

A day’s visit can comprise a wide variety of activity. Lunch can be eaten in the safe environment of the courtyard or, if wet, space can be found indoors. There is a small shop with suitably priced articles for children.

Contact Barbara Swinn for more information. School bookings are accepted on Tuesdays when the museum is closed to the general public.


Teachers – bring your class on a rewarding school visit

Roman Alcester offers hands-on visits linked to the National Curriculum Key Stage 2. Other age groups can be accommodated by special arrangement. Children can make use of all the museum’s facilities to bring Roman Britain alive. They can handle pottery and other artefacts and maybe dress in Roman armour for a photo opportunity. The visits have become an increasingly popular part of the Museum’s activities.
