Schools

A visit to the Museum can inspire your students, cement their learning and help them understand the real-world applications of studying natural history.

You can plan a trip to cover aspects of the science, geography or art curriculum. Students will come face-to-face with stunning specimens, engage with interactive exhibits and meet Museum scientists.

Our workshops, science shows and self-led activities are for all ages and levels, from Foundation Stage to Post-16.

These pages can help you plan a day out at either of our Museums, or supply you with resources to do at home or in the classroom.
