The story of how the Pease family created Saltburn is a great way to learn about important people and places locally. In these sessions, children investigate the development of Saltburn and the railways by the Pease family. They meet Mrs. Pease and discover the clothes, costumes and activities that made up a fashionable day out at Saltburn or Redcar 150 years ago. Then dressed in costume, students explore Victorian photography, pose for their portrait and design their own postcards.

Key learning outcome:

Students will learn about significant historical events, people and places in their own locality through the Pease Family and the arrival of the railways.

Main leaning approaches:

  • Active learning
  • Collaborative learning
  • Planning a visit:

    Workshop lengths vary, with price varying accordingly.

    Teachers can book up to three sessions to create a whole day at the Museum, or combine led sessions with independent exploration of the exhibitions.

    A room for lunch is provided when booking sessions led by the museum staff.
