Permanent Collection and Temporary Exhibitions
Our stunning collection is a great way to expose students to a broad range of media: paintings, portrait miniatures, sculpture, ceramics, silver and textiles. We’re renowned for our eighteenth century paintings by such famous artists as Gainsborough, Ramsay, Stubbs, Raeburn and Zoffany. Students can broaden their knowledge and find endless inspiration for their own portfolios.
We also have a programme of high profile temporary exhibitions, often drawing on national and international collections, plus interventions by contemporary artists and can offer workshops linked to these. Please call to discuss how we might tailor a workshop to meet your requirements. We can also arrange life drawing sessions at the Museum for your students, please see above for details..
Our workshops can also be adapted for small groups of pupils with special educational needs, giving added emphasis to sensory experience.
Self-led visits are also available: pupils and teachers have free entry but booking is still essential. Please call 01225 388568 to book.
Please see Visit Guidelines for further information to help plan your visit.
