Unique learning experiences that bring subjects to life!

Bury Transport Museum's School programmes provide a wide range of hands on activities and workshops suitable for all abilities in Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. Provided by a dedicated team, it is expected that pupils completing the programmes will not only gain a more first-hand outlook on the region’s history but will also develop the skills and experience necessary to advance in their education.

School Santa Specials

Let your class get into the spirit of the season with a trip on our dedicated School Santa Specials train on 7, 9, 14 and 16 December 2016.

There will be entertainment onboard, presents and of course Father Christmas, all hauled by a steaming engine. Bury Transport Museum will also host Santa's Treasure Hunt, which you and your class are free to enjoy once you return to Bury.
