The opportunity to visit a museum or handle historic artefacts can really enhance your pupils' learning experience.  Our diverse collections provide wonderful resources to support topics across the curriculum.

Teachers who have used Hastings Museum have said:

"The objects supported and helped the children to use their imagination, problem solving and enquiry skills." 

"History came alive for the children using the objects."

"Actual objects can stimulate all sorts of thoughts and ideas ... The objects created a story, a mystery, for them and started them on a journey of exploration with a tangible 'hands-on' link to the past."

"Working with the objects extends their knowledge and what they can expect from themselves.  They were able to produce much better work that they thought possible."
