To ensure a safe visit it is essential that schools meet our minimum adult:child ratios. The price per class includes up to ten adults and any additional SEND support. You can request to bring additional adults on your booking form.

The museum is split across two sites, separated by a road and the Mail Rail train has small carriages.

Please provide an accurate number of adults including SEND support staff on the booking form. This is essential for the Mail Rail ride. Extra adults will not have a booked seat for the train.

If you do not meet minimum adult:child ratios your school may be denied entry to the museum. If you bring more adults than requested on the booking form you may be asked to pay extra.
