We welcome young visitors to explore our permanent local history displays and try out our family friendly activities.
Summer Term Only
A fun-filled and hands-on session for one class of KS1 pupils, investigating how a trip to the seaside in the past differs from that of today, by exploring objects, photos and souvenirs, clothing and games.
Pupils exercise their detective skills to investigate life in the past in Gosport, exploring real objects, maps, photographs and other documents. They present their findings to the rest of the class at the end of the session.
A workshop to introduce pupils to the skills required to set up and run their own mini museum, using hands-on activities and real historical objects to investigate object care and conservation, labelling and display
KS1 and KS2 self-led resources to help your class to investigate the museum and its' collections. Self-led resources are FREE, but MUST be booked in advance.
A one-hour session with games, objects, costumes and trails helping your class to thoroughly explore and experience our new displays.
A one and a half hour session using our resource box of hands-on activities and games, encouraging your pupils to use thinking skills.
A self-led visit for KS2 groups doing the Rocks and Soils unit, linked with a geology walking trail along Gosport High Street. An ideal add-on to the Geology in Action session at SEARCH in the same building. Please contact the Education Officer for more details.
There are limited toilet facilities available for pupils use, so please ensure your pupils use their school facilities prior to their visit.
