As a working windmill, Skidby supports learning in history, numeracy, science, design and technology, and geography.

There are interactive exhibits and supporting material in the form of trails and information sheets and an education room for use during a visit. There are also outdoor activities available in the wildlife garden and adjacent field with backpack observation activities to borrow during a visit.

All group visits must be booked in advance to any of the museum sites to avoid group booking clashes. This is essential even if a self-directed visit is proposed. Contact the Mill Reception to arrange a visit.
