Due to Covid-19 we are sadly unable to accommodate any school visits to the museum this term. However we are pleased to offer the following:

  • digital workshops that have been designed for teachers to use in school
  • loan/theme boxes to hire (our class costume boxes are currently unavailable)

We are now taking provisional bookings for school visits to the museum for autumn 2021.

Please get in touch to discuss how we can support you and your school.
