New for 2024, educational groups have the opportunity, Tuesday – Thursday during November only, to spend your whole day at the Roman Army Museum with an additional 1-hour educational workshop to add into your itinerary. Groups must have 15 or more people.

Our Roman Soldier School Days at the Roman Army Museum would include:

·       A visit to the Roman Army Museum.

·       A lesson in the Roman Classroom with our holographic teacher Veilius.

·       An opportunity to view the Edge of Empire award winning film.

·       A bookable 1-hour workshop (10am, 11am or 1:30pm) in our new Activity Centre with your choice of theme (see below).

·       Receive a class certificate for joining the Roman Army. 

We will also provide an indoor space for lunches between 12 & 12:30 for schools attending the workshops.  

Workshop Options are:

Real & Replica: Finds handling looking at real Roman artefacts and replicas, creating your own museum display and understanding primary sources and biases.

Bootcamp Bonanza: Get your class dressed up, marching and learning Latin commands as well as working as a team. A great photo opportunity.

Additional Extra: Self led walk to Walltown Quarry park to see Hadrian’s Wall – resources available to aid the trip.


These workshops are led by our Activity & Diversity Officer and include our brand-new interactive sensory projector Omi to deliver bespoke games during the session. We are delighted to be able to offer this exciting, new technology as part of our educational offer. With motion activated technology, everyone can get involved, regardless of ability or age. The technology has been designed with SEND participants in mind and is inclusive of the whole group.  

If you would like to know more about our accessibility, please visit our website or contact [email protected] directly. 

Alongside our workshops, groups can explore the Roman Army Museum using three curriculum based themed packs for you and your students to get the most from your day.



Ticket including a 1–hour workshop: £8 per person

We offer 1 free adult to every 10 children. Any additional adults enter at the child price.
