The MERL collection can help support the curriculum and enable students to develop a variety of skills. We welcome visits from learning providers who want to experience cross-curricular opportunities.

‘The Museum of English Rural Life is an excellent place for a school visit. The galleries give a fascinating insight into how people lived and worked in the countryside. The displays provide excellent support for schools looking at projects such as ‘field to fork’ or for those based in the area looking at local history. The Education team at the museum are enthusiastic, very well organised, able teachers. They are committed to making each school visit memorable and educationally valuable for children of all ages. I strongly recommend a visit.’
