Learning is central to what we do at Wandsworth Museum.


Our permanent and temporary exhibitions are designed with learners of all ages in mind, and these inspiring spaces provide a backdrop for our diverse Education Programme.

We deliver workshops, talks and events for school groups, families, adult visitors and visitors with additional needs. These explore a variety of subjects and themes, including history, art, storytelling, drama, and our local environment.


The Museum’s large handling collection brings the past to life for our visitors, providing opportunities to touch and investigate real and replica artefacts from the Roman era to today.


As well as our exhibition galleries, we also have a dedicated education space suitable for group workshops and displays.
