Schools & Special Groups

Please contact us to discuss booking a group visit.

The Pen Museum is an ideal place for school and special community group visits.

Throughout the Museum there are a range of activities for people of all ages to enjoy including writing with a quill and ink, using typewriters, try your hand at calligraphy, use graphology to analyse your handwriting, follow the nib trail, hear first hand experiences of pen workers, plus an exciting opportunity to make your own nib using the same machinery once operated by women workers in the 19th century. *

*Please note that while we will always endeavour to offer activities as advertised on our website and leaflet, this is subject to change at short notice due to volunteer availability. On the day of visiting, this may mean that we offer you an amended visit. We appreciate your understanding and our commitment to delivering excellent customer service means that you will always receive the best visitor experience possible.

Usually we charge a special rate of £5 per person (Carers & Teachers: FREE).

(Recommended for Children aged 10+)

Groups of 10 visitors and above should contact the Museum in advance to enable us to be prepared for a visit.

“Many thanks for looking after our party from RESTORE, we had a great time! The time we spent with you was really informative, interactive and fun. From the welcome at reception and initial introduction to the museum, through all the input from other members of the team and the activities on offer I was very impressed and grateful. I look forward to returning again with another group and encourage you to keep up the really good work!”
