Learning and Education

Our vision is to enable individuals to explore, learn, participate and create through inspirational artefacts and works of art.

The Beaney offers a wide range of creative learning activities and self-guided visits; from Early Years and KS1-5 school visits, to workshops for students and adult learners.

Whether you are investigating the Ancient Egyptians or Ancient Greeks, exploring art and sculpture or discovering some incredible collections and stories from around the globe, the Beaney brings subjects to life as part of a rich, cross-curricular experience.

Our interpreter-led workshops give participants the opportunity to handle real artefacts and develop a range of investigative, enquiry-based learning skills.
