Bringing History to Life...

Every object tells a story; in our educational sessions we tell stories using the objects and buildings, engaging the pupils with the subject matter in a way that helps to make history come to life.

We cover history and local history from the Palaeolithic to the post-war years, within the national curriculum as well as beyond.

Learning at Southend Museums is suitable for KS1 to KS4, A-Level and Undergraduate level, as well as SEN groups and adult learners. See our range of learning sessions which can be booked at museumseducationteam@southend.gov.uk
