Learning at Wolverhampton Arts and Heritage

An-Education-Session-at-WAVE
Wolverhampton Arts and Heritage venues are special places where everyone can enjoy learning and develop a range of skills. Learning outside the classroom in museums, galleries and archives gives children the confidence to explore their surroundings and broadens their understanding of people and the world around them.

It won’t be long before we launch our new sessions for the 2018-19 academic year. The link will be here soon.
