Amberley Museum is a large, mostly open-air site with plenty of space to explore within a safe, contained environment. Our inspiring natural setting, varied working exhibits and volunteer welcome make us a popular choice among further education colleges, universities, language schools, uniformed and home-schooling groups.
We can offer you a bespoke visit relating to your area of choice, involving talks, demonstrations and often hands-on experiences.
We are also keen to offer work experience and volunteering opportunities to young people who wish to build up their skills, whether in heritage crafts and trades or in the museum sector.
2 x 30-minute facilitated sessions, plus resources for 1 self-guided activity, priced at £25 per 15 children (exclusive of admission at our educational rates).
Choice of facilitated sessions:
- Make linoleum-cut prints of South Downs endangered species and learn fascinating facts about these creatures.
- Make a deluxe paper pinwheel to demonstrate wind power and learn about the use of wind power through the ages.
- Get up close to museum objects with our Industrial Revolution or Communications handling collections.
- Work together to join pocket money pennies into a battery, powering an LED in a simple electrical circuit.
Choice of self-guided activities:
- Nature walk on one of our newly renovated nature trails, with ID sheets provided.
- Get to grips with a new language with our semaphore flag challenge.
- Navigate around the site using old maps and archive photographs.
