Learning at Bradford District Museums & Galleries

Want your students to learn in an engaging and creative way out of the classroom? Bradford District Museums & Galleries’ Learning Team offers schools a wide range of curriculum-linked workshops at our inspiring sites.

Our four sites have wide-ranging collections that can be used to enhance classroom learning across a variety of subjects and give pupils enriching experiences which add value way beyond the visit.

We also support in-classroom learning with outreach resources, including handling boxes, videos and photo packs

Please see the video below for a snapshot of what your pupils could experience.


See below for a list of our workshops.

If you are planning to bring your pupils on a self-led visit to our museums, please still contact the Learning Team on so that we can give you information to help you with your visit.
