Teachers and Schools

We have for many years welcomed school children and their teachers visiting the Museum. Many return year after year. Our introductory session covers Cook's Yorkshire background, his naval career, the great voyages of exploration, and his ideas on topics such as diet, scurvy, and encounters with previously unknown peoples.

There are many links to the curriculum, and we are happy to tailor visits to your particular needs in, for example, art, history, geography or science.

We work with schools on STEM projects and are an enthusiastic host to Kids Take Over days in the Museum!
