Learning and Engagement

Introducing our new formal and informal learning programmes. Developed especially for children to help them understand our local hertitage from prehistoric to present day. This includes home life, industry, shops, trades, farming, leisure, sport, war, holidays and the local environment.


'One hands-on session in St Barbe Museum is worth a few hours spent in the classroom'

St Barbe is proud of our links with the local schools. Our Learning & Engagement Officer, collabrates with the school teachers to put together a bespoke activity either here at the museum or at the school. Please click here to see a full list of activities for schools.


NEW for the Autumn MY Museum Children's Club (MC2) is a project designed by St Barbe specifically to inspire children to be involved in the cultural shaping of our community. Using the museum as a platform, child-friendly talks are hosted in the museum on the third Sunday of every month from 11.00am-12.00pm.

The topic of the talks and speakers are chosen for the variety of different themes they cover, for their charisma, and for the passion that distinguishes the presenters in their area of expertise. In combining all these elements, we hope to present new and inspiring role models, outside the family environment.

Please note that booking is essential, as places are limited.
