Education and learning

School events at Stories of Lynn offer the perfect opportunity to bring the curriculum to life with the help of our unique collection of historic objects, documents and spaces. Pupils learn about the past through hands on and engaging sessions including costumed characters, object handling, storytelling and craft activities.

Stories of Lynn in collaboration with Norfolk Museums Service’s learning team delivers innovative programmes for primary schools. Our museum is situated in an amazing historic building with wonderful interactive displays and fascinating collections. Discover stories of the seafarers, explorers, merchants, mayors, magistrates and miscreants, who have shaped King’s Lynn, one of England’s most important medieval port towns, over more than 800 years of history.

At Stories of Lynn, we specialise in bringing local history and learning vividly to life.

At Stories of Lynn we have a core schools programme, with a number of different events offered to schools and groups. Some of the sessions will be delivered solely at Stories of Lynn, and some will include elements that will be delivered at Lynn Museum.
