Educational Activities


Sunderland Maritime Heritage sees Education as one of its main functions. We welcome visitors who are interested in our work, either individually (on a drop-in basis) or in groups by appointment – please see our normal opening hours on our Home Page, where you will also find contact details.
We welcome school visits, normally from years 4 to 9 and offer interactive and fun visits.  We also offer more specific topic based visits for older pupils.
Our volunteers may also be available to come into schools, with artefacts and presentation materials.

We can provide speakers to local clubs and societies.

We provide placements for College or University students with relevant areas of study, including some craft skills.
We have a small museum area with tools from the shipyards and equipment from ships.

One of our exhibition rooms dedicated to models of locally-built ships and important local old buildings by our expert model builder, Fred Gooch.

Finally,  we have a small library suitable for research on local history and shipbuilding (By appointment only, please)
