Museum workshops

Bring your topic to life with our tutor-led, interactive, curriculum-linked learning sessions. Pupils can touch, hold and study real Museum objects, from an Ancient Egyptian shabti to a real shark's jaw to a north Indian sitar or try pond dipping on our Nature Trail.

We are now fully booked for all taught workshops for the 23/24 academic year. Bookings for the 24/25 academic year will open on the 3 June 2024.
