Our learning programme for schools supports the National Curriculum and encourages the usage of objects, photographs and paintings as a learning resource.

We offer school sessions based in the permanent collection of Burgh House & Hampstead Museum linked to local history. All sessions include object handling, discussion and a self-guided trail for the museum.

All sessions can be tailored for EYFS, KS 1-3 and special education needs.
