Families & Learning

From song & rhyme for babes in arms to talks and lectures for grown-up culture enthusiasts, our learning and education programme at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery offers something for all ages.

Our Early Years programme aims to grow young minds and stimulate the senses via story and role-play in workshops such as Mini-Mammoths which is perfect for parent and toddlers/babies.

School groups can explore our collections via cross-curricular sessions with experienced educators in the galleries and in our new education room.

Taster sessions and longer courses offer adult learners education and the opportunity to draw and paint under expert tuition, to understand more about local history or to create something wonderful.

Our talks and lectures programme, run jointly with the Friends of Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery offer a rare opportunity to discover the stories behind our exhibitions and to explore the hidden secrets of our collections. We also run a talks programme alongside some of our special exhibitions to give enable you to delve deeper into the history behind the exhibits.

Family activities, holiday sessions, trails, tours and artefacts handling sessions ensure that Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery really does put family learning at the heart of its everyday work. Watch this video to see more about fun family learning at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery!
