We are passionate about education and getting young people engaged with history.

Whether you are looking to visit us, would like us to come to you, or are looking for handling objects to use in school, we have something for everyone.

A visit to Macclesfield Museums is a great way to inspire your pupils and complement and enhance classroom based learning. Our visits are all led by our experienced education team. The children get the opportunity to handle artefacts, express their creativity through a craft session and interact with one of our costumed interpreters. This mix of activities ensures that the visits are a memorable learning experience with both skill and knowledge development.

“The trip on Tuesday really was amazing. Our children and staff were all very impressed and enjoyed every element of it. We as staff felt the variety and balance in the hands on experiences were great and really captured the children. There was plenty to keep them occupied in each session and they were very keen and interested to find out more. All the members of your team were excellent and had so much knowledge to pass on at the children’s level. Personally, I felt we all got more out of this visit than previously to other establishments offering the same experience.”
