What we offer
We help teachers, students, home-schooled children and community groups discover how Chesham fits into the jigsaw of local, national and international history. We bring Chesham’s past to life with our object boxes, dressing up outfits, workshops, resources, walks and bespoke projects.
We are passionate about encouraging students to think about who has walked around their streets, what they looked like, thought and saw. Here at Chesham Museum we have volunteer teachers with decades of experience in education to help bring history alive in the classroom so it is easier for you to deliver the National Curriculum with confidence. We also offer bespoke walks and projects – price dependent on scale of the request.
Cost of workshops £60
Feedback from schools we've worked with
I would like to say again a massive thank you for all your hard work with the power points and the project - they are amazing and the children loved learning about the railways in Chesham; they found it extremely interesting. They also enjoyed exploring the artefacts and had so much fun. We are very grateful for all your hard work and help.
The speaker from the museum captivated the children from the outset with stories and information about the history of Chesham, especially those relating to the hard work the children faced all those years ago! The artefacts brought the town’s history to life and provided an excellent starting point for our local history topic. The children (and I) are keen to delve deeper in the coming weeks - thank you!
Chesham Museum provided us with a fantastic array of resources, including real and replica artefacts, pictures with information of historical sites, and even a detailed walking tour of historical locations in our local area. These resources were vital in helping bring our topic about the history of Chesham to life. The children loved seeing all the fantastic artefacts and photographs provided by the museum which helped deepen their understanding of how life in our town was different in the past. We can’t wait to work with Chesham Museum again!
Thank you again for lending us the object box. The children enjoyed the activity. The teacher had a table for each of the 5Bs and the children rotated, drawing the artefacts and finding out facts about each one.
