Our programme for schools and older students has been adapted to adhere to Government guidelines to ensure your visit is safe and enjoyable.

On selected dates from 16 September to 16 December 2020 we are welcoming back formal education groups of all ages. We are currently able to offer the option to explore the museum’s galleries on a self-guided visit for you and your students.

Looking to book a visit beyond 16 December? Sign up to our Learning Newsletter to be contacted when more dates become available.

Key things to consider before planning your visit

  • Bookings must be made at least two weeks before your planned visit date
  • We can accommodate a bubble of up to 40 people (students and accompanying adults) per visit
  • The bubble must be in a category that is exempt from prevailing Government guidelines relating to the number of people who can meet
  • Please ensure you have permission from your school, college or university to visit the museum with your students
