Learning

It’s great that you’ve missed us over the past year and can’t wait to come and visit us again! This does mean, however, that due to huge demand we are FULLY BOOKED until January 2022 for both Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and M Shed.

Please contact us to book visits in Terms 3, 4, 5 and 6.

We will send instructions for your visit and a COVID-19 Risk Assessment with your booking confirmation – please read all of this carefully and make sure everyone in your group is aware of the safety information.

All groups of 10 or more need to book a visit to our museums in advance through the Learning team. Please do not try and book groups through the general visitor online tickets, as these will be cancelled. Do remember to bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you when you visit.

Free school webinars

We’re sorry if you can’t visit us in person due to our reduced capacity, so why not sign-up for one of our FREE school webinars?  If your topics this term include ancient Egypt, Stone Age to Iron Age or ancient Greeks, and you haven’t been able to book a workshop, we will try to arrange a webinar for you instead.

Free webinar for home educating families
