About MuseumStream

Our new MuseumStream sessions are an amazing opportunity to bring the museum directly into your classroom!

MuseumStream provides specially adapted ‘safe’ object handling and resource boxes that are duplicated back at the museum, so that we can innovatively deliver learning sessions to you and bring historical stories to life.

How does it work?

  • MuseumStream boxes of artefacts/resources will be based at your school for four days; you can use them to make displays and use with multiple groups.
  • MuseumStream boxes can be delivered by our teams or be collected by teachers.*
  • The accompanying sessions are available in full or half day formats.
  • All sessions include the option to experience a live-streamed guided tour of our galleries, exploring even more artefacts on display and finding out about how museums care for and interpret the objects they hold.
  • Our Learning Team are fully DBS checked and are online-safeguarding trained; sessions will be accompanied by a risk assessment in advance.
