November Lockdown

In line with the Government guidance our museums are now closed. This includes The Museum of Somerset, Somerset Rural Life Museum and Somerset Brick and Tile Museum. We will not be able to visit schools during this time either. Our Loans Service will continue to operate. We will resume our museum workshops and in-school visits when Government guidance makes that possible so please keep an eye on the website.

Bring learning to life for your pupils and discover stories from the past. 

In this section teachers can find information about museum and in-school workshops and loans of museum objects. 

Museum and In School Visits

We offer workshops for schools at the Museum of Somerset in Taunton, Somerset Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury and the Brick and Tile Museum in Bridgwater. We can also visit your school. 

Loans of Objects

Your school can borrow a wide range of real and replica Museum objects to support creative learning in the classroom.


Bring the national curriculum to life with our interactive, fun and informative workshops.

School Subscriptions

Become a school subscriber to receive workshops, both in school and at our Museums, and to loan real artefacts.
