The educational offer from the Kent Mining Museum will soon be described as the jewel in the educational crown for Betteshanger Park’s many learning opportunities. We actively encourage learning by doing and believe that active learning through hands-on exploration and play is the best way to develop independence, promote curiosity and discover more about the world around us.


We will strive to meet a diverse range of learning needs and styles through delivery of our learning programme. Once complete, the Betteshanger Visitor Centre will have a dedicated Learning Space, funded by the Clore Duffield Foundation as well as providing a unique outdoor environment and a range of resources to captivate interest.

Once open, the Museum will deliver a comprehensive learning programme with strong curriculum links and a range of workshops, projects, and experiences to appeal to formal and informal learners of all ages whilst also catering to different learning and teaching strategies. We would be happy to discuss any requests from schools and learning providers.
