Warwickshire Heritage Education (Museums)
The education team for the Warwickshire Museum and the County Record Office, Heritage Education provides information, advice, talks, activities and workshops for children and adults using the museum and archive collections.
The Market Hall Museum houses displays of local archaeology, natural history and geology. A huge brown bear will be the first to greet you in the Museum entrance, and there are wilder beasts to follow. Track the early history of Warwickshire and find the places you know on the Sheldon tapestry map. Also look out for ancient jewellery, fantastic fossils, bees and bugs. The ground floor exhibition gallery offers an exciting programme of changing exhibitions.
St John's House Museum. A kitchen full of drawers to open and cupboards to explore, a Discovery room for the under 5's and a Victorian school room. Really experience how people lived in the past. The displays include a costume gallery and the Museum of the Royal Warwichshire Regiment is located on the first floor. The displays are housed in a historic 17th century house with gardens, nearby car park and a grassy picnic area.
