More about us

Hi, I'm Justyna and I'm the Education and Outreach Coordinator at the Museum of Classical Archaeology. It's my job to make sure your school trips to the Museum are fun and inspiring – and not just educational. Whether you're one of the local schools in Cambridge or are travelling further afield, I'm here to help you plan your visit to us.

My background is in teaching. I have a PGCE and have taught Classical Civilisation for several years. My interest in the classical world has always skewed towards sculpture and vases and I'm excited to share this passion through student tours and secondary school visits. I have experience running museum education sessions and am just as confident with primary school groups.
