LEARNING AT THE MUSEUM
East Grinstead Museum covers the story of the town from prehistory to the present day and serves as a great local history case study for use in both primary and secondary schools, as well as other educational settings.
The Museum has a display dedicated to the story of the Guinea Pig Club and their surgeon Archibald McIndoe. The story is of international significance for its place in the history of medicine and the part the town played in the Second World War.
The Museum welcomes self-guided visits during opening hours - all we ask is that you let us know that you plan on coming. There are resources available to aid those visits, from our Learning Resources page.
However, we also offer a wide range of activities, for children and adults. These include town tours of the historic High Street, and presentations on a wide variety of local history topics, including the Guinea Pig Club. These can be found by looking at the links on the right hand side of the page.
If you would like some help, or want to discuss an idea, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
