Our wonderful work experience students each year make welcome videos you are welcome to show your class to give them a little more information about their visit.
If you wish to have closed captioned subtitles, simply click the ‘CC’ button on the video.
We are currently developing our other welcome videos for schools visiting Museum of Archaeology, Durham Castle, Archives and Special Collections.
