Roman museum conquers

Verulamium Museum has won a national award for its ‘outstanding’ education programme.

The St Albans museum, which showcases the city’s Roman past, was given the Heritage Education Trust’s Sandford Award for its schools outreach scheme. Pupils visist the museum to take part in a range of interactive lessons about Britain’s Roman era.

Annie Brewster, culture portfolio holder at St Albans City and District Council, said it was a very special honour. ‘I am delighted for our museums team which has developed a first class heritage learning scheme for schools. They are already working on another exciting programme for schools that will run at the new museum and gallery which opens in St Albans next year. We want our children and all our visitors to learn about the amazing history of the district.’

The Sandford award, presented by historian and BBC presenter Lucy Worsley, is given to historic sites, museums, galleries and archives for their learning schemes.
