The Devil’s Porridge Museum is the perfect place for schools, bringing World War One, World War Two and the Solway Military Coast to life.

Typically, trips focus on WWI, WWII or the Solway Military Coast post-1945. However, visits can be tailored according to your educational needs and we are more than happy to provide activities focused on specific topics.

We can provide facilitated sessions for school groups visiting the museum. These sessions involve talks and activities conducted by museum staff and volunteers designed to enrich the educational aspect of the visit. Schools can also visit on a self-led basis.

School visits are priced at £3.00 per child, with accompanying teachers and staff free. Pupils are welcome to bring a packed lunch for the visit, with both indoor and outdoor spaces available to use for breaks. Our standard visits run from 10am to 2pm, but timings can be altered to fit with the visiting school’s requirements.

Booking is essential. Please call 01461 700021 or email to discuss your requirements or to make a booking.
