We have a huge range of artefacts to support your topics from Roman suits of armour and Victorian poss tubs to a duck billed platypus.
Our framed art works include mining scenes, local landscapes, historical portraits and local artists such as Tom McGuinness.
Our art collections contain five A2 laminated copies of famous artworks aligned to curriculum topics
Using these resources in the classroom help to bring your lessons alive and provide real sensory experiences, helping to develop key skills such as speaking and listening, creativity, enquiry and comprehension
You can browse the artefacts and pictures on our website or ask for us to send you a selection to support your topic.
To view our artefacts and artwork, see our online reservation service.
Watch our artefact videos, created with author and storyteller Adam Bushnell, showing how artefacts and artworks can be used to enhance a topic and develop skills. You can also use these videos in your class.
