Roman Baths Clore Learning Centre

The project will provide a new state-of-the-art Clore Learning Centre at the Roman Baths.

Why is a learning centre needed?

The current Roman Baths education facility consists of just one room within the museum. It is too small for up to date learning requirements, lacks the facilities that schools expect to find at a major visitor attraction and is often booked to capacity. The new learning centre will provide the full breadth of facilities required for a school to get the most out of their visit, in revived formed Victorian spa buildings.

What will happen in the new learning centre?

In the new learning centre, school groups will be able to take advantage of a range of new interactive learning sessions. Children will dress as Romans, handle original artefacts, investigate Roman building technology and find out about the inscriptions the Romans left behind. They will also have the chance to try archaeology, excavating replica Roman objects in an underground ‘investigation zone’. They will then walk in an underground tunnel amongst in-situ Roman remains to enter the Roman Baths through a Roman doorway.

Sulinus the stonemason needs your help! He needs you to save the date for the Roman Baths Foundation’s Christmas appeal – Digital Explorers.

You can help children, young people and community groups walk in his footsteps, to explore and interact with in-situ Roman remains. You will help create an exciting learning resource that they will use. It will bring to life Roman culture and building methods through advanced technology.

For one week only, your donation will be doubled. You can make your donation to Digital Explorers from midday 28th November 2018 to midday 4th December 2018. Save the date! What will you offer?
