Free activity worksheets for Museum visits

Free gallery booklets

These interactive booklets are filled with activities that guide students through specific galleries and encourage them to engage with the Museum’s exhibits.

For Key Stages 1-3

We have four free worksheets for you to download and print before your visit that can be used across the Museum.

These resources are suitable for Key Stages 1-3 (ages five-14). They link to a variety of curriculum themes such as literacy, art and science, and contain tips to help you prepare for and follow up your visit to the Museum.

They are the perfect complement to our Explore and Discover gallery guides, which focus on specific galleries.
