Shakespeare's World

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

Session Description

Through looking at objects and paintings in the collection, this session sets the context for an understanding the artistic movements of the sixteenth century, and encourages students to apply their knowledge of literary analysis to the interpretation of art works.

Format of the session

The museum-led session is scheduled for two hours and is delivered in the first sixty minutes of your booked slot. We recommend that schools use their second hour for follow-up time from the taught session.

'Use of hands-on objects very engaging and enlightening for our students. Paintings were very interesting. Staff were amazing!' – KS4 Teacher
