School Visits to Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery

Heritage Doncaster’s education team provide engaging and immersive learning experiences on a variety of topics supporting the national curriculum.  Our education officers encourage children to get hands-on with history, science, and art.


We teach from two fantastic sites - Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery and the beautiful Georgian country house, Cusworth Hall & Park. We can also bring workshops into schools.  

In 2020 our museum and art gallery will move to a brand new building in Doncaster’s cultural quarter, alongside Doncaster Central Library, a Rail Heritage Centre and the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Museum.

Workshops cover a range of topics supporting the national curriculum, including:

  • History – Romans, Stone Age, Ancient Egyptians, Vikings
  • Science – Alchemy Academy, Dino Detectives, Seaside of the Past
  • Art & Design – Messy Models

Visit our website for full details of workshops at Cusworth Hall and Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery, including prices, itineraries, and summaries of workshop content.

Teacher comments

Alchemy Academy.....The children were positively engaged and eager to learn throughout. Resources were very well prepared and the instructions on how to use them throughout the session were clear and helpful to how the session ran so smoothly.  Love the outfits and chance to dress like scientists!
Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Primary School

The Romans are coming.....History focused but loved how other areas of curriculum were also covered, even maths! Children thoroughly enjoyed hands on activities and dressing up. The hands on activities were perfect for SEN children.
