Behind the scenes, we are working on an exciting new service to get museum collections and digital learning into schools to support your classroom learning. To be the first to hear about this and future news and offers, be sure to sign up to our mailing list.

From Tudor feasts to Victorian Washdays, exquisite paintings to industrial history, Salford’s museums are a great starting point for inspiring young minds to grow.

Our Learning Team provides school visits for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 as well as for Key Stage 3 and above. We also offer downloadable resources to support classroom learning and sessions for ESOL groups. Our Teacher Forum enables learning professionals to engage with shaping the museums’ learning offer.

Ordsall Hall and Salford Museum & Art Gallery have been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge which is a nationally recognised indicator of good quality educational provision.
