The Museums at South Kensington and Tring are currently closed.

When the Museums re-open, due to Health and Safety guidelines we will be 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 if you have any questions about the Museum at South Kensington.

For information on our Museum at Tring, please email

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.
