Due to covid-19 (‘coronavirus’)

Brampton Museum is closed until further notice.

Schools Programme...

From 22nd May 2020, Brampton Museum will be closed to the public for building work to commence.  We will be building new learning and gallery spaces, providing better collections spaces and creating new museum displays.  We will be closed until early 2021. 

We are now taking bookings for school outreach workshops.  During closure, a member of our Education Team can visit your school bringing items from our collection and your class can take part in an immersive 1 hour workshop in your classroom at school.

Please see below for current outreach workshops:  

Key Stage 1

  • Toys from the Past 
  • Seaside Holidays in the Past

Key Stage 2

  • World War 2 - handling collection
  • Roman Newcastle Outreach Workshop

Further details about the session content is available on request.  Alison Tinning, the Education Officer, is more than happy to discuss your specific requirements either by phone or email.

Price :

Outreach workshops (in your classroom - max 32 pupils) 1 x 1 hour workshop - £95

                                                                                           2 x 1 hour workshop - £160

Payments for outreach visits - we will invoice you for the full amount when you book.

Booking is easy, just call or email with your choice of session and preferred dates.  We will arrange the session and then email a booking confirmation, along with additional workshop information and a copy of our risk assessment.

When you book your school workshops with us we will ask you about any pupil special educational needs, disabilities or access requirements that we need to be aware of so we can give your pupils the best possible experience during our time with them.  To help you prepare your class for their visit from us, we can provide photographs and names of the Education Team members that will visit your school and a simple Visual Timetable of the outreach workshop to hopefully alleviate any anxiety that pupils may be experiencing about an 'off timetable' activity with a new person.  These have been designed with autism in mind, but can help all pupils prepare for the day.  You will be emailed this along with your booking confirmation, risk assessments and additional information for the day. 

For more information or to book please contact Alison Tinning, Education Officer, at the museum on 01782 742209 / 619705, or email

Recent comments from teachers of visiting school groups have included:-

"As the SENCO I can honestly say that I am so impressed with your forethought regarding these children - I have been on many school trips and we have never had a visual timetable sent before.  We have a couple of children who may find the change in routine a challenge, so the visual timetable will be great to prepare them."

“Enthusiastic staff and lovely activities.”

“Not too far, good price and enjoyable for children.  Good mix of listening/learning and interactive/making.”

“The organisation was brilliant – no hanging around or waiting.”

“Reasonably priced, accessible, fab facilities.”

We are a Council-run museum and art gallery and we follow Council policy and guidelines on safeguarding, sustainability and our impact on the environment. We minimise waste, recycle, use low energy light bulbs and try to reduce our impact on the environment when we can.
