Schools visits to the Weald & Downland Living Museum


At the Weald & Downland Living Museum we offer exciting opportunities for students of all ages. Providing this inspiring learning environment is key to our Museum mission.

  • Our beautiful site has rescued buildings that date from between c.950 to c.1910 and provides opportunities for cross-curricular learning; from an Anglo-Saxon hall house to an Edwardian tin tabernacle church
  • We were one of the first sites in the country to be awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom quality badge and, in 2017, were re-awarded the Sandford Award for Heritage Learning
  • We offer Museum-led workshops, which are closely linked to the National Curriculum, as well as teacher-led visits
  • For visit prices and other information for teachers please click here
  • Resources for teachers can be found on our site openairclassroom and we are currently developing further materials
  • Our schools team brings a wealth of experience to organise a carefully planned visit and can provide support in suggesting options best suited to your group
  • We run days for teachers to investigate topics relating to cross-curricular learning outside the classroom
