School visits

We offer many different educational workshops to complement a visit to the museum. All our workshops have a local history link and some can be combined with visits to other sites of interest within walking distance of the museum.


There are three brand new Key Stage 2 sessions for 2017. Based on the local history of Market Harborough, each session is one hour long and can be combined to make a morning or day of activities:

  • Harborough Heroes – find out about the famous people that lived and worked in Market Harborough
  • All in a Day’s Work – learn about the jobs and industries that made Market Harborough the town it is today
  • Town Trail – walk around the town and discover clues to Market Harborough’s past. Use our magic viewfinders to compare the Harborough of the past with today.

We also offer the following workshops:

  • Remembrance Day (Key Stage 1)
  • Toys Past and Present (Key Stage 1)
  • The Hallaton Treasure – Iron Age and Romans (Key Stage 2)

We also offer an extensive range of Outreach sessions delivered in your school. Visit the Creative Learning Services website to find out more.
