The British Schools Museum in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, has been given a major grant of nearly £90,000.
The money from the Heritage Lottery Fund will be used to develop the museum's learning programmes.
The grant will fund the appointment of a Learning and Access Manager for the next 3 years.
"Whilst our fantastic volunteers will remain absolutely vital, we will now have an experienced and highly-qualified museum professional to lead and develop our provision of learning activities and engage with a wider range of audiences."

The manager will also work to improve links between the museum and the local community.
