“Hands-on History to Inspire, Engage & Create”


Saddleworth Museum and Art Gallery offers an engaging School Learning Programme, currently providing opportunities for Primary and Secondary Schools to learn, engage and explore our local history on a national scale.

The museum contains a huge collection of artefacts, ranging in date from the Mesolithic period to the present day. It also has an invaluable archive of written documents relating to the local area, that date back to the 1500’s. A key objective for us is to encourage access to these artefacts, documents and collections through educational workshops and outreach projects.

For a full menu of workshops on offer please click here. We are happy to discuss bespoke workshops and partnerships to support your curriculum or project should you not find what you are looking for.

Additionally, have a range of Loan Boxes available, packed with historical artefacts to bring your classroom to life.

We look forward to welcoming you soon! If you would like to make a booking to bring a group or require further information, please complete and submit the form below.
