Explore our brand new state-of-the-art Exhibition and experience for yourselves the three-hundred-year-history of The Bar Convent. Designed by the team behind The Titanic Experience and Bolsover Castle Visitor Centre, the Exhibition will inspire pupils of all ages with the latest digital technologies, original artefacts and interactive touch-screen displays.
Hear the story of Luftwaffe bombs, rampaging mobs, priest-hunters and pioneers. Hide yourself away in a priest hole, and meet the Yorkshire-born firebrand nun Mary Ward, whose dedication to girls’ education saw her imprisoned by the Inquisition. Be inspired by the women prepared to follow in her footsteps, no matter the cost - mother-superiors, missionaries and martyrs – and discover the tale of Margaret Clitherow, who paid the ultimate price for her faith.
Learn about the charitable work of the Congregation of Jesus around the world today, and meet the sisters who still call these fascinating buildings home.
Educational visits booked with us in advance are only 50p per pupil.
