Due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, all of our museums are closed and we are not currently taking any bookings for school and group visits.

Virtual Visits for schools during Term 4

Are you studying ancient Egypt, the ancient Greeks, Stone Age to Iron Age, Roman Britain, the  Anglo-Saxons, the Bristol Blitz, the Kingdom of Benin or Bristol’s chocolate-making history? Why not book a ‘virtual visit’ and a member of the Learning team will ‘visit’ your classroom via Zoom to answer your children’s questions and share images of some relevant objects from Bristol Museums’ collections. Please contact us for more information.

Resources for home learning

You might not be able to visit us but we’ve collected activities and information for you about our favourite history topics including ancient Egypt, Kings Weston Roman Villa and Bristol’s Black history.
