Families are always welcome to visit the museum when we are open to the public.
Groups of Home Educators are welcome to book on our Schools programme. The day is suitable for students aged 10 years and above and costs £12.00 per head (minimum booking fee of £170.00) for groups smaller than 14.
We also offer days specifically for Home Educators. The main programme is most suitable for students aged 10 and above, although we also offer activities for younger children.
The day includes activities on the key museum exhibits:
Handling museum objects to understand how technology has developed
Talks on the code breaking machines which helped to win World War 2
Talks about the WITCH - the oldest working computer in the world
Hands on learning using vintage BBC Micros to program the game Snake
A practical workshop on artificial intelligence
For younger children
‘Family pack’ containing a toy, book and special trail to guide you around the museum.
Osmo learning games for letters, numbers, shapes and money.
