DISCOVER

Our discovery boxes are an exciting educational resource designed to supplement the school curriculum. Each box is filled with artefacts, handling items and activity suggestions. For families, we have our Snooks Discovery Trail.

This covers both floors of the museum and various landmarks in the town.

OUR SUPPORTERS

The first year of our learning programme has been made possible by donations from the Suffolk Community Foundation and The Clore Foundation. Their generosity has helped fund our specialist learning officer and supports a range of activities for families and schools’ groups.
