The History of Education Centre is a wonderful resource in Edinburgh for students and people of all ages
An Important Update for Our Visitors
The History of Education Centre or ‘The Victorian Schoolroom’ provides a unique opportunity in Edinburgh to discover the changes that have taken place in schools and domestic life, in particular in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
The doors of the Victorian Schoolroom may be temporarily closed but rest assured we are working hard behind the scenes to get up and running again, and we are looking forward to the day when we can safely invite visitors back to experience the wonderful ambience of our classroom and to handle all the exhibits in our Museum room. As soon as we can do that safely we will.
Remember too you can borrow one of our Loan Boxes which contains a variety of objects, including dressing up clothes, to use in your classroom.
We rely mainly on visitors’ fees to cover our running costs. We are very grateful this year 2021 to receive a grant from Museums and Galleries Scotland (MGS) for The Renewing our Past: History of Education Centre COVID response to update our website and make digital content available to the public.
