Due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, we are not taking any bookings for school and group visits. Instead, we are offering an online programme of webinars, assemblies and professional development for teachers. We run separate webinars for schools and Home Educators that are tailored to learning needs – please ensure that you book on the correct link below:

Are you teaching and learning about ancient Egypt, prehistory, ancient Greece, the Romans or the Anglo-Saxons in your school?

You can now book a ‘virtual visit’ into your classroom by a Museum Learning expert, who can answer your children’s questions and share a related object from our collections. Please email us to find out more and to book.
