Our museum is very well placed to meet the ‘Local History’ objectives of the National Curriculum, containing a wealth of objects which tell the stories of life in March and the surrounding area.
Schools are welcome to bring a class at a time for a visit. This ensures that the children have enough space to properly explore the exhibits and displays. Teaching staff are more than welcome to come and have a look round our museum before planning the visit, to see exactly what is on offer and how we can help you meet your objectives.
For example, it may be that you decide to plan your visit so that the children are in 5 groups, each looking at a different part of the museum:
The Fenland Cottage and outside privy
The Victorian Wash Day equipment
The Victorian kitchen, parlour and nursery rooms
The rest of the museum
We are very flexible and will work with you to ensure your visit is tailored to your class' needs.
The organiser of any group visit is requested to complete the group visit form and send it, by post or email, to the Museum including as much detail as possible about the visit. We do not charge for visits from local schools or youth organisations e.g. Scouts, Guides, Beavers etc. though of course we will accept donations. Cheques should be made payable to ‘March & District Museum Society’.
Group visit request forms and Risk Assessments can be emailed to you, or picked up from the museum.
