From the teachers...
"I have had wonderful feedback from the students - the tour/workshop has supported and added to what has been discussed in class."
"We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and our experience of the Nicholson Museum."
"The guides were very knowledgable and had a wealth of information to impart to the children".
"I just want to say how much I enjoyed the day, and how impressed I was with how the day was run. Making museums interesting for children is not always easy, but the presentation was excellent. The presenters managed to engage the children and make the day fun and interactive - the bit with two of the kids being 'mummified was great."
"Thank you so much for such a knowledgable and fun event, that would create such a passion and interest in history"
“Both I and my students have always enjoyed the day thoroughly”

“The guides captured and maintained the interest of our
5-year-olds – no one asked when it was lunch time, and that is an indicator in itself!”
"We were most impressed with the program and the three presenters did an excellent job with the students."
