We have been welcoming schools to Brooklands for over 15 years and over 10,000 children now visit the Museum in organised school parties every year. We have a team of experienced Volunteer Guides (all CRB checked) and an Education Centre that has ample space for activities and lunches.
Our mission is to create an enjoyable and inspiring learning experience, not only bringing to life eras such as World War Two and the 1930s, but also using the technological achievements of the site throughout the 20th Century to stimulate an interest in science and technology. Our youngest Primary School visitors are able to trace the development of transport over the last century through our collections of cars, aeroplanes and bicycles.
Brooklands Museum fits much of the National Curriculum and QCA Schemes of Work, and we ensure that our educational tours and other activities reinforce learning at school by liaising closely with teachers to meet their requirements.
