We are open all year for UK school visits by pre-appointment. We also offer special ‘home-eductor’ days for home-educating families to experience the museum during term time. We also offer a loans box service for UK Schools and have updated workshops to complement a museum visit. Our learning offer is adaptable for all needs and we will discuss any special requirements your students have during the booking process.  

School Visits

A visit to the museum offers children a tactile, engaging and fun experience

Loans Boxes and Virtual Lessons

Bring the Museum to your classroom with one of our loans boxes and allow us to host a virtual classroom session

SEND

We have put together a variety of resources to help plan visits for SEND students, ensuring their experience is tailored to their needs
