Your trip

Groups can book a self-led visit to the Gardens and main galleries for free and there are a range of supporting resources available.

We offer a range of taught Museum workshops which link to the science, geography, art and music curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to touch, hold and study real museum objects during these workshops. If you are unable to visit the museum, we can offer object loans from our extensive Handling Collection at minimal cost to enrich students’ learning in the classroom.

Work experience and university groups

The Schools Team hosts a small number of work experience students each year. Museum staff also participate in careers fairs and outreach workshops to share their experience of working in the cultural sector.

We also offer an educational discount and tailor-made workshops for university groups that include: curator-led talks and tours; tailored object handling sessions; exploring objects from our renowned Handling Collection; talks about object based and/or Museum Learning.
