The Museum of Bath at Work
Local History Study
A small, cosy museum with friendly guides. The museum has lots of information on the world wars and artefacts which the children can handle and look more closely at. We visited as part of a creative week and spent a total of 3 days in the museum. A really interesting way to learn more about Bath history as there were rooms set out from different work places in Bath and the children really enjoyed looking at all the old machinery. There is a really useful learning space upstairs which we used to further ideas – the children wanted to design their own machinery. We returned to school and researched influential people in Bath and the different trades that they had learnt about at the museum.
