We welcome schools!


Live Borders Museums, Gallery & Archive service brings the Curriculum for Excellence alive. Expand your students’ horizons and enrich classroom learning with the help of our fascinating collections and engaging programmes. Our collections are ideal for exploring literacy, numeracy, the arts, social sciences and technologies; all thought-out by experienced museum educators.

Teachers can extend their learning beyond the classroom and pupils and students engage with the museums through discovery, discussion and hands on activities. Varied activities support a range of different learning styles and give pupils the opportunity to expand their curiosity and creativity in thinking and learning.

Workshops and activities vary across our twelve museums.


The Museums, Gallery & Archive service offers a wide range of workshops and demonstrations throughout the year and has a lively events calendar. Our outreach programme allows our experienced museum staff to visit your school or community centre to deliver bespoke learning sessions or to give talks on any of the exhibitions on display in the building.

Further information on our learning programmes coming soon!
