Walks around Nelson

We offer a range of walks outside of the Museum that can be tailored to specific needs and ages. Please select from the headings below for further details:

+ City Walk all age groups - Social Sciences

This walk takes you up Trafalgar Street and into South Street and to the Shelbourne Street Cemetery. Students move in groups with a parent using laminated books of photographs of Nelson of the past. Stories of the old city are told and students complete a worksheet as a record of the programme.

+ World Around the Corner Walk Yrs 3 - 6 - English

This walk traces the setting of Maurice Gee's book World Around the Corner. Students need to have had the book read to them before they come on the walk. A teacher's guide is available on request.

+ Sculpture Walk Yrs 1- 8 –The Arts

Public spaces can be like outdoor art galleries. Our city is full of sculptures for you to investigate within walking distance of the museum.
