Introduction

Abergavenny Museum and Castle is an ideal venue for an educational visit. We welcome schools who wish to bring pupils for a general visit to look at the castle and/or the museum displays. Entry is free. We do ask that you let us know when you are intending to visit, so we can let you know of any events that may affect your visit. 

We are mindful of the pressures on the school budget and for this reason, we have put together ‘Castle Discoverers’, a self-led workshop for schools, which focuses on the history of the Castle through outdoor learning.  

We also run a successful programme of formal pre-booked school workshops, which are well attended by schools from the surrounding area and further afield. All of the sessions have been designed with the curriculum in mind to allow the children to find out more about a particular subject area, whilst experiencing the unique environment of Abergavenny Museum and Castle. There is a charge for these workshops.
