Using Artefacts as a Gateway to Learning and Engagement

12th March 2019, London

Get closer to museum objects than ever before!

The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a fascinating attraction based in South London’s Forest Hill. It houses a number of unique collections including anthropology, musical instruments, natural history, an aquarium and 16 acre garden.

The Education and Community Learning Team use these artefacts with school children and local community groups as a way of engaging people with the natural world, and to gain an understanding of people and cultures.

Join us for a day at the Horniman Museum to:

  • Discover ideas and activities on object based learning and handling
  • Increase confidence in handling a range of artefacts in a learning environment
  • Learn how the Education and Community Team connect with wider audiences using the museum and gardens
  • Develop an understanding of how objects can inspire and engage
