Chelmsford City Museums

Making a booking enquiry

We have two sites you can choose from, both offering exciting and engaging sessions for school-aged children.

Chelmsford Museum, in Oaklands Park, offers a wide range of cross-curricular sessions. Your class can explore topics including history, maths and art. You can opt for a museum-led session, or we can offer free resources to support self-led visits.

Sandford Mill, our science education centre, is set in extensive grounds by the River Chelmer. This site offers hands-on physical and natural science sessions from April to October half term. 

We have a mixture of half and whole day sessions. You can combine a half-day, museum-led session with a free museum trail to create a whole day visit.
