Melton Carnegie Museum – School Visit Terms & Conditions

Activities before during and after your visit

We recommend that your pupils learn at least a small amount about the chosen topic before your visits and if there is anything in particular that you would like us to cover within the session, then please let us know and we will see if we can assist.

For the hunting legacy session (Chase to Melton), we recommend doing a town trail before or afterwards to put some of the buildings in their context.
