The International Slavery Museum offers a range of activities, sessions and resources for education and community groups of all ages. Learning sessions are free sessions specially devised, often around the national curriculum, to offer learning opportunities based on our collections and displays. Most sessions are led for you by a member of our staff. They are free of charge, but are very popular and booking well in advance is advised.
The International Slavery Museum explores both the historical and contemporary aspects of slavery, addressing the many legacies of the slave trade and telling stories of bravery and rebellion amongst the enslaved people.
We welcome groups of Early Years children from both schools and nurseries to the museum, where they will find many colourful and unusual objects to inspire conversation and creative work. as well as providing an historical overview of the subject.A free resource pack for KS1 children and above is available. If you would like to discuss your visit in advance with one of our learning officers, please contact us.
You are invited to bring your children and explore the museum gallery in your own way. However, the gallery can be busy, so it is essential that you book in advance to avoid overcrowding. Do please contact us as soon as you can, when we can advise on numbers, timings and other facilities.
