The Tudors

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

Explore life in Tudor England by looking at portraits and armour. This session includes the opportunity for pupils to look at replica costumes and armour.

Contact us on 01223 332904 or email to book, or to discuss your needs.

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.

You can also book a studio workshop related to this theme.

'I learnt a lot in the day and it was an amazing experience. I will certainly come many times again.' - KS2 pupil
