Dover Museum is the ideal location for a school or educational group visit.
We offer a wide range of cross-curricular workshops for Key Stage 1, 2 & 3 pupils throughout the school year. These fit in with the National History Curriculum requirements and QCA schemes of work. Workshops and talks are hosted in our dedicated Education Room and in the museum galleries.
For older pupils, the museum can provide a range of specialist talks; further details of these are available on request – please contact us for more information.
