School group visits to the Museum

The Museums at South Kensington and Tring have reopened to the general public. 

Due to Health and Safety guidelines we are unable to welcome back large group visits, including school groups, until further notice. This is for both self-guided visits and booked workshops and shows.

We are currently working on a plan for school visits to return, as well as exciting opportunities for us to connect with you digitally in school. Please email school-bookings@nhm.ac.uk if you have any questions.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students back as soon as we can. Sign up to our Teachers' newsletter to be the first to hear when school bookings re-open.
