Learning Activities for Schools and Groups

In the welcoming surroundings of the Museum, we are able to offer a variety of activities to support individual and group learning.

We are now accepting bookings for the autumn 2020 term. Owing to the public health situation we have had to make some changes to some of our activities. This is so that we can provide your group with a safe and enjoyable experience.

Main Changes

At the current time we are only able to accept school groups on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

There is a maximum of 30 children with accompanying adults in addition. Regretfully we are unable to accept larger groups.

The cost of a visit is £8.00/child (exc VAT) from September 2020.

Booking Terms

We have also made some changes to our booking terms. You can find our terms here which we encourage you to read carefully.

Useful Information / FAQs

We have put together some information that we are often asked by teachers regarding facilities, our gift shop etc. You can read these FAQs here.

Risk including Covid-19

There is a Covid-19 Risk Assessment in place at the Museum. You can find the version for External Users and Partners here. Where we have put additional measures in place for specific activities you can find those included with each of the Hazard Identification Sheets for that activity. They can all be accessed here.
