Commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War

Barry - Tower Bridge London2018 is very special year.  Across the world, communities are commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War.  Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is taking part by hosting a series of exhibitions – Cicatrix, Art and Conflict and The Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry – as well as offering an engaging and informative teacher-led workshop to schools.  Swindon at War focuses on the impact of WWI on Swindon and the work of influential war artists at that time.  To book a session, contact us at smag@swindon.gov.uk.

Teacher-led sessions

We also offer teacher led sessions in the following subjects:

  • Local History Study – a series of tasks that identify some of the historical people and places that have defined the Swindon we know today.
  • Modern Art and the Swindon Collection – a series of tasks that highlights ways of engaging with modern art and the most prominent modern artists in the Swindon Collection.Teacher and school page

You are always welcome to devise your own teacher led session using the Museum as a base.  We are happy to supply copies of our current Gallery worksheets to support your visit.
