What we offer 

Over the past two years the learning team at SIMT have been reviewing and developing our service for schools and other educational groups.

We looked at what teachers and pupils want from a visit to a museum and used this to inform the changes to our programme. At the top of the list was meeting people from the past, using role play and handling real artefacts.

We are very proud of the new programme which incorporates all of these “best bits” and is underpinned by our new learner-centred ethos.

The film below gives a flavour of one of our investigation days which focuses on Sheffield during the Second World War. We hope you enjoy it!
