Take a peek into the past!

Education is vital to our work here at The Fusilier Museum.  We offer a varied programme for all ages and abilities.


Our guided tours and workshops for primary schools are suitable for Foundation to Year 6.  The regiment’s story spans over 300 years and we bring this story to life through our engaging, interesting and participatory workshops. Topics covered include;



First World War

Second World War


Children will learn through;


Costumed interpretation

Getting hands on with historical objects

Links to local history

Practical activities


We aim to be flexible in our offer to Secondary and Further Education groups in order to best fit the needs of your students. Our offer includes tours, object handling and bespoke sessions. We are also happy to bring objects from our collection straight into your classroom through an outreach session.


Education at The Fusilier Museum is not restricted to schools.  We welcome work with youth groups, scouting, guiding and many other educational organisations.
