Planning your visit
We can tailor visits specifically for you and your group. Is your focus ‘energy’ next term? We can develop an activity which will link to the curriculum, your theme and our collections. From creative writing to GCSE art, and longshore drift to lifeboat design, we will try to inspire your students to find out more.
Our aim is to provide you with a quality experience, so it helps us if we know what the objectives are for your visit. Our Learning Officer can then plan effectively and put any measures in place to help you and your group make the most of your visit. We therefore request that you contact us at least two weeks in advance of your visit, to ensure that your experience is of value.
You can contact our Learning Officer to discuss your group's needs, arrange to come for a pre-visit or make a booking. We offer all group leaders a free pre-visit before any booking so you can complete your risk assessments and have a face-to-face discussion with us about any aspects of your visit. This is really useful - it gives us an idea of any additional needs your group may have, and lets you familiarise yourself with the layout, facilities, collections and emergency procedures.
How much will it cost?
Sheringham Museum offers free entry to Sheringham schools for self-led visits. For all other schools we charge £1.50 per student for entry into the museum.
If you would prefer a guided tour with activity sheet, the charge is £2.50 per student.
For a workshop session with our Learning Officer or another specialist, the charge is £3.50 per student. Sessions usually run for 2 hours. Entry into the museum is free for all accompanying adults.
We believe every child should be able to access out of the classroom learning experiences and cost should not be a barrier. However, we are an independent museum with charitable status and any charges are to help us maintain the collections and keep the museum open for you to enjoy.
