We love welcoming schools to Bodmin Keep
Learning about heritage in an out-of-classroom environment is invaluable and can really make a subject come alive for the pupils.
Our museum is jam-packed with fascinating artefacts and stories, covering centuries of social history, war and soldiers’ stories.
Get hands on with History
We have uniforms to try on, a First World War trench to explore and artefacts to touch and feel. You can also hire First World War, Second World War and Remembrance loans boxes to support a visit for £25 per week.
The boxes support teaching in the classroom, link to the national curriculum and are an ideal starting point for promoting and developing observation, critical thinking, problem solving, questioning, and empathising skills.
We believe that a museum visit should be memorable, fun and inspiring and our galleries tell stories that provoke discussion, challenge attitudes, and explore themes of conflict and humanity.
Topics cover the Boer War, the First World War & Second World War
Our museum led sessions all link to the National Curriculum and cover Key Stage 2, Key 3, Key Stage 4 and Post 16 years.

We have a large room available for lunch and workshops, and an outdoor picnic area for use when the sun is shining!
