Education and Outreach

Childrens activities at Elgin Museum

While we await the appointment of a new Education & Outreach officer, school groups are still welcome to visit if the teacher wishes to run their own session; some handling boxes are available on loan to be taken out to schools. Family events will continue, run by our volunteers.

Elgin Museum offers a wide range of activities to suit primary and secondary aged children, linked with specific areas of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.  We actively encourage children  of all ages to participate in museum led activities and outreach sessions.  We have an Education Policy that enables our Education and Outreach worker and other Museum staff and volunteers to deliver a flexible and adaptive service to suit the differing needs of schools and other groups.

The Museum also has a variety of object handling boxes that can be used both within the museum for school activity sessions and for outreach sessions.  These object handling boxes include:

  • World War II
  • Medieval Life
  • Fossils
  • Victorian Life
  • Early Man

We welcome ideas and suggestions from schools – if there is an area of the curriculum that you would like us to cover, please contact us and we can discuss your specific needs.

We also hold regular craft and activity drop-in sessions throughout the school holidays – please visit our ‘What’s On‘ section to find out what is happening at the Museum.

If you would like to book a session for your class/group, or discuss ideas for possible sessions, please contact the Museum on 01343 543675 or email us.

Elgin Museum is grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Robertson Trust for their support in making these activities possible.
