Key Stages 1 & 2

During COVID-19 we have an active virtual school programme which is closely linked to the national curriculum whilst also inspiring young people to develop as independent learners.

At the moment we are not taking bookings, even provisional ones, for group visits to the Museum. We are keeping this policy under constant review and will amend as circumstances and government advice change around social distancing.

We look forward to welcoming groups back as soon as we can.  Below you can see what we are normally able to offer.

Beau Street Hoard stories

As part of our Beau Street Hoard project we worked with MA Writing for Young People students from Bath Spa University.  They wrote four short stories based on the remarkable hoard of 17, 577 silver Roman coins which were found in Bath in 2007. It is one of the most remarkable archaeological discoveries to have been made in Bath in recent times.  The coins span the period from 32BC – 274AD and were found in eight separate money bags. Visit our children's page to read the stories.
