We are delighted to have won a Sandford Award for Heritage Education for our schools programme! Judge Judy Davis commented:

Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery offers visiting groups the opportunity to experience a wide variety of subjects for all age groups from Roman times to the present day. The museum is spacious, attractive and well equipped. The facilitators are competent and know the building very well. Local schools are extremely fortunate in being able to use the museum for a wide variety of age groups and topics.
