Educational visits

Lichfield Museum is the perfect venue to delve into our city's rich history. We have a full educational programme for visiting groups to enjoy, including workshops designed to bring to life the rich history of Lichfield, from Roman times to the present day. Visits are organised to engage pupils and meet curriculum goals. Each study package is tailored to the requirements of each individual school. Group activities are organised and led by the Museum's teaching staff, focusing on:
  • Tudor Lichfield

  • Documents - looking at original documents to find evidence about the past, writing with a quill or pen.
  • Information gathering - from the exhibition.
  • Artefact collections - handling artefacts from the study period.
