Doncaster Museums' Education Service

Doncaster Museum learning sessions include, Stone Age, Ancient Romans, Greeks & Egyptians. Science based workshops for Archaeology, Chemistry and Dinosaur & Fossil detectives workshops. We also provide fun hands on Sculpture workshops. Cusworth Hall Museum & Park provides a beautiful setting with purpose built learning rooms where the children can immerse themselves in times past. Workshops include, Florence Nightingale, Toys, Homes, Seaside, Life in the past and more.

Our sessions are delivered from Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery and Cusworth Hall, Museum and Park.

The learning workshops are delivered by specialist and experienced museum education officers. If you are looking for a specific workshop for your class that is not listed here please contact the education officer at the relevant site.

We also have a Museum Loans Service, which offer objects, artefacts, art and natural history specimens and more available for loan to schools:
