We have developed an education programme that can be enjoyed either on-site or virtually from your classroom. Aimed at KS2 and facilitated by experts, the multi-sensory sessions are fun, playful experiences, encouraging exploration, imagination, and collaboration.

Each session will:

  • Provide an exciting and memorable experience supporting the National Curriculum
  • Develop observation, questioning and prediction skills, challenging pupils to think critically
  • Enhance pupils’ understanding of the past and the impact of the Roman Empire on Britain
  • Unlock the secrets of Roman London and discover what life was like 2,000 years ago

Pupils with special educational needs don’t miss out, as the sessions can be tailored to pupils’ individual requirements.

Interactive virtual workshop

Explore three Roman London Sites

In partnership with the City of London and Culture Mile Learning, we are delighted to offer a live, interactive multi-sensory workshop that enables students to virtually explore three important Roman sites in London:

  • London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE
  • London’s Roman Amphitheatre
  • Billingsgate Roman House and Baths

This free 60-minute session challenges pupils to think critically and enhance their understanding of the past, unlocking the sights and smells of Roman London as they explore the accompanying replica artefact box, which we donate to each participating school.

We run these live sessions on select Monday mornings and currently have good availability on 13 June and 4 July 2022.

On-site facilitated workshop

Currently fully booked for the 2021-2022 school year but open for bookings for September 2022 onwards

Our engaging school workshops give you and your pupils exclusive access to London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE.

This free workshop is facilitated by an experienced educator and will see pupils become archaeologists by investigating real Roman artefacts. They will uncover stories of the first Londoners, learn about Roman religion, and experience the original Temple of Mithras through an immersive light and sound experience.

The two-hour session aims to extend your pupils’ knowledge about Roman London, and encourage the development of observation, questioning and prediction skills.

These sessions, held on Wednesday mornings, have a capacity of 30 children and are suitable for KS2. Lunch facilities are available on request.

On-site self-led visit

If you cannot attend our facilitated workshops, we welcome classes of up to 30 pupils on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday morning for a teacher-led visit with an introduction and activity pack provided by London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE. This allows pupils to experience of the original Temple of Mithras and explore our 600 Roman artefacts on a more flexible basis, and is open to all educational institutions.

Visits take approximately 1 hour. Please note the museum will be also open to the public at the time.
