Lifelong Learning

"Learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.”

Special activities for adults

Trowbridge Museum offers a range of adult-orientated workshops and services including reminiscence sessions in care homes, lectures and talks and adult art and craft workshops. Our reminiscence workshops include object handling to encourage conversation, crafts activities and singing and are a brilliant opportunity to engage with older groups. We are available for illustrated talks to groups such as the U3A and the WI and run regular short courses and one-off workshops for adults of all ages. We also have a summer walking programme.
