Learning at the 1620s House and Garden

Inspiration Learning in Inspirational places

This beautiful medieval house is presented as a fully furnished Jacobean home from the early 17th century. Our friendly house and garden guides on normal open days and our busy events programme offer great opportunities for informal learning throughout the year.

Our learning programme is currently in re-development.

Our approach to learning

  • Our approach to learning

    We provide hands-on, multi curricula-based learning sessions in exciting historical places.

  • Learning Strategy

    Our strategy is to bring our important historical stories to life in our Museum sites, through our multi-skilled and engaging learning team.

    We work alongside Creative Learning Services who provide outreach sessions to schools and groups.

  • How we evaluate

    Evaluation is very important to us, so we can keep evolving and improving. We give every school group leader a digital and physical copy of our evaluation form and we encourage them to be returned so we can praise our facilitators or improve our sessions as required.

  • Learning partnership

    We work closely with teachers to make our sessions as good and relevant as possible.

    We run a Heritage Learning Panel which we invite to support us with session pilots and advice on current curriculum needs.
