Due to covid-19 (‘coronavirus’)

Brampton Museum is closed to school bookings until further notice.

Schools Programme...

The Coronavirus Pandemic has meant that we have had to reduce our opening hours and facilities, and at this time we are unable to take any bookings from schools for the new academic term starting in September 2020.

We currently cannot take bookings for school outreach workshops.  We are investigating how we can support teaching in schools digitally, and when we are advised that it is safe to do so we hope to begin to offer outreach workshops in classrooms.  Of course eventually we hope to welcome all schools back in to the Brampton Museum for our immersive education workshops!

For more information please contact Alison Tinning, Education Officer, at the museum on 01782 742609 / 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.
