Ashby de la Zouch Museum Digital Engagement Projects

Back to school

Look out for our education team, hopefully coming to your school soon!  We are offering local schools the chance to ask us in to take an assembly which we will use to let you know what we can offer schools, children and families.  We aim to make the assembly as lively and as fun packed as possible with such things as:

  • role play with children participating
  • dressing up
  • cartoon images and other photographs
  • comical “Who wants to be a millionaire” style quiz with real objects – and real prizes (but not a million pounds – sorry!)
  • flyers for children and posters and information packs for schools

Look out for our promotion pack in your school post coming soon.

Museum Education

it’s the REAL THING!


Museum visits give children the chance to experience history through real objects.  Our dedicated education team can help to give your school Museum visit real WOW factor.


We can help you plan an activity session in the Museum to suit your requirements and topics.   Here are some examples of what we can do but we can tailor other sessions to suit you and your children.


Toys Old and New

World War II – The Home Front

Victorian Children

School visits to our Museum are free of charge!

About this Sponsor

Ashby Museum was established in 1982 in a small cottage in Lower Church Street. In 1991 it relocated to its present home in North Street, where it shares the old National School building with the town Library and Tourist Information Centre. In 2006-7, thanks to a major Heritage Lottery Fund Grant, a two storey extension was added. It is a Registered Charity and is run by a group of trustees supported by over 50 volunteer custodians. It won the Leicestershire Heritage Award for best temporary exhibitions in 1998, 2001 and 2003. In July 2007, the museum won Museum of the Year in Leicestershire. It works closely with the county Museum Service and other independent museums in the area, sharing expertise and artefacts.
