education and resources available while the museum is currently closed
The Museum aims to help the people of Moray and others to engage with the history of the area for their entertainment, education and enjoyment. The Museum has lots to offer young people, encouraging them to see their heritage as something accessible and relevant to them, something which encourages their growth as responsible citizens, confident individuals, successful learners and effective contributors.
The Museum previously offered a full range of free outreach, curricular visits and family activities and will resume this service as soon as it is safe to do so.
You will find lots of engaging activities on the Education and Resources section of their website, from video activities to quizzes with new activities being added while the museum is closed. If you’d like to find out more, or would like copies of activities sent out to you, please contact the museum by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
