Schools

A visit to the Museum is a fun and inspirational day out for young people. You can plan a trip to include aspects of the science, geography or art curricula.

Our galleries can cover topics from volcanoes and earthquakes through to evolution and human biology. Our workshops, science shows and self-led activities are for all ages and levels. 

These pages can help you plan a day out at either of our Museums. We also have a range of resources to support learning at home or in the classroom.
