We look forward to receiving your school group to the museum and inspiring your students.

Every visit includes a tour of the museum with our special discovery tablet. You can also book an interactive workshop.

School visits are held between 10.30am and 1.30pm every day except Monday. On Wednesday to Friday, we can accommodate one class (up to 32 pupils) per day. On Tuesdays, the museum is closed to the general public and we can accommodate two classes, offering them exclusive access to the museum during their visit.

Each visit costs £3 per pupil, with a minimum fee per class of £70.  Accompanying teachers are free.

We offer free pre-booked teacher orientation visits once your school booking is confirmed. For more details and to book, contact our Access and Learning Officer Isobel Hood on
