The Museum provides a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. We present an important part of local history, but there are also opportunities to use the museum and its collections to explore themes in technology and maths

Schools have used the museum to look at work in the past, local history, engineering, science and maths. We can help you with planning a visit, risk assessments, and advice for a day which could include the Swanage Railway.

We are happy to arrange guided tours for adult special interest groups and endeavour to slant visits to your area of interest be it geology or industrial archaeology.
