School Visits to Haslemere Museum
Haslemere Educational Museum has a wonderful tradition of offering children of all ages the opportunity to learn, discover and explore the world around them. The Museum’s founder Sir Jonathan Hutchinson established the Museum in 1888 and encouraged learning through the handling of objects, which at the time was a pioneering idea. He understood this technique was as important as observing and reading about the object. Today the Museum offers a wide range of subjects from early learning to Outreach in to the community.
A large variety of sessions is available for Foundation to KS2 including Humanities (Egyptians, Toys, Greeks) and Science (rocks and minerals, skeletons) based on the Museum handling collection and gallery displays
Haslemere Museum is always looking to develop workshop ideas to suit different age groups e.g. KS3 – 5 and other curriculum areas which is especially important in the present climate of curriculum change.
