The York Army Museum is committed to offering high-quality educational activities for learners of all ages.
Our workshops, assemblies, and self-guided visits are designed to support and enrich the aims of the National Curriculum and foster a lifelong passion for history and culture.
As a small independent museum, we can offer a unique learning experience for school groups. Our workshops use historical artefacts, role play and sensory experiences to help students connect with figures from the past as real people.
In 2013, the York Army Museum secured a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to redevelop our facilities and launch a brand new learning programme. The new museum, which reopened in May 2015, has flexible learning spaces within the new permanent exhibition which are designed to adapt to meet the needs of visiting groups.
2016-2017 is the pilot year for the York Army Museum's learning programme and we want you!
If you would like to arrange a visit to the York Army Museum for the 2016/2017 academic year, then contact our Activities Officer, Allison Freeman firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visits and workshops are free for schools. Allison and her learning team are also available to deliver assemblies and workshops at your school free of charge throughout 2016/2017 academic year.
