Schools outreach

Museum in Residence at one of our local schools

We’re reopening in spring 2020 with reimagined galleries, gardens and new spaces for learning.

While we’re closed we’re still in touch with lots of schools, community groups, young people and families. We want everyone to have the chance to shape what our workshops, sessions and programme will be like when we reopen.

Schools offer

We can come to you with our handling collection.

You can have the Museum in Residence for 2 or 3 days, or a one-off object handling session for your students.
