About Digital Missions
Digital missions are character-led adventures that encourage pupils to navigate and observe the palace spaces while solving challenges on a tablet. They are a self-led resource to support classes to explore the palace independently.
Pupils are encouraged to use the palace as a primary source to weigh historical evidence. Working as part of a team, they will develop their perspective and judgement by exploring particular palace spaces in more detail.
Your school group will be shown a 'How to do a mission' film at the start and issued with one tablet between two pupils.
£2.00 per pupil, plus £3.95 admission
