We offer a range of teaching sessions focused on Roman daily life, with opportunities to handle Roman objects from the museum’s collection and investigate historical sources. All sessions are linked closely to the curriculum and cover Roman bathing, religion and belief, Latin language, and life in Roman Britain.

In the Clore 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.
We will relocate to the new Clore Learning Centre towards the end of 2021.
We have activities for international students studying English. We worked with Languages United, a local language school, to create activities to do before, during and after a visit.
Students with an intermediate level of English will benefit most from the resources, which can be downloaded for free here: Resource pack for International Students
In addition, we offer hand-held audioguides in twelve languages at no extra charge and leaflets are available in over 30 languages at the reception desk.
For groups of international students visiting the Roman Baths, there are some extra guidelines to take into account. For full details, please read this document: Information for International Students
