School Visits

We utilise our unique collection of over 20,000 objects to offer a wide range of innovative, fun and enjoyable activities to a variety of audiences.

All activities support the National Curriculum and can be adapted to suit the specific needs of visiting groups.

We currently offer the following options for schools;

  • In-house taught sessions for KS1 & KS2 (Primary children).  Choose one of our taught session topics which involve lots of hands-on learning, as well as subject specific trails through the museum galleries.  Each in-house visit lasts for 2 hours and costs £4 per child
  • General visit - if you prefer to visit the museum and guide your own groups around (using our gallery trails) you are welcome to do so.  General visits cost £2 per person (trail resources are provided free of charge)
  • Outreach session - if you would prefer for a learning officer to visit your school to offer the session, this can be arranged.  Please give us a ring or drop us an email and we can discuss your requirements

We have teamed up with the National Waterways Museum in Gloucester, and the Gloucester Academy of Music, to offer a full day’s learning experience at a discounted rate per child.  Contact us to find out more information about these partnerships and making the most of your visit.

We look forward to welcoming you!
