What Does the Ure Museum Offer?
Please note there is a charge for group visits.
A Valuable Resource
There are approximately 2000 objects in the Museum, not all of which can be displayed at any one time. However the displays are changed periodically and less valuable items may be handled by school groups. The museum is open between 9 am and 4.30 pm weekdays. School groups must book in advance for a session - please contact the Education Officer.

Interactive Resource- Annie's Box
This exciting new interactive experience is a collaboration between the Ure Museum and Museum in a box.
How do we know about what happened in the past? Historians and archaeologists use bits and pieces of information- whatever they can find- and use those bits and pieces to create a narrative. Become a historian and use the collection to piece together Annie's story.
So who was Annie? Open the box to find out!
Annie's box covers Key Stage 2 and 3 subjects, such as Geography, History, English and Citizenship.
If you would like to have Annie Ure's box in your classroom, please contact our Education Officer firstname.lastname@example.org
