Self-led visits (Nursery – KS3)

Teacher-led visits to explore the museum with your class. Book to visit us on Thursdays and Fridays in term-time.

Suitable for all key stages. Select your choice of activities and lead your class visit, your way.

We will provide a short welcome then you’ll take your class on a teacher-led visit to explore the museum. We recommend you book a free planning visit to prepare for your day.
