Museum Education

While The Hunterian does not offer a schools programme we welcome school parties to our museum and art gallery.  The collections and displays, covering many curricular areas (see Collection Summaries ), are best suited to primary 4 -7 and to all secondary levels.  Younger visitors are welcome but teachers or group leaders may wish to assess suitability for the group during an advance visit.

Information for Teachers or other group leaders interested in visiting our display of Roman artefacts - Antonine Wall: Rome's final Frontier

  • The Hunterian has provided a Resource Pack focusing on life at the time of the Antonine Wall.
    We are very grateful to Grace Hepworth, Msc Museum Studies for compiling this pack as part of her final assessment (2012).
  • The pack comprises 3 sections: Pre-Visit, Visit and Post Visit activities and discussion points, allowing you to pick and mix as best suits your topic.
    Use the links on the right to download the resource pack and some additional materials.
  • There are scheduled tours of the display delivered by volunteer students (see Tours for more details).  Please note that tours are primarily aimed at a 16+ age group with a max of 15 participants.

 Additional Resource: "Roman Frontier Tales"

In support of dissertation research, Museum Studies student, Guillem Martí designed this cartoon strip label depicting a short story inspired by the Roman Shoes featured in the Antonine Wall display.  This label was displayed briefly in the museum to allow visitors to comment on their reactions.  It is hoped that school children might also enjoy this short story, which can be downloaded via the link on the right.
