education leeds workshops


Pupils will come face-to-face with history at the home of the national collection of arms, armour and artillery.

Our education sessions take place in our dedicated learning centre, around the Fort and in the museum galleries amongst the collection.

Sessions are designed to provide a hands-on experience giving school students, teachers and families the opportunity to explore and interact with the artefacts and gallery exhibits.

If you wish, our workshops can be adapted to suit other key stages/age groups. Please speak to the bookings team to discuss your group’s requirements.
