A teaching class in the 1870 drawing room

The museum will be closing in January 2018 for a major, transformational re-development and is scheduled to reopen in early 2020. To prepare for the museum's closure we will be running a reduced programme of sessions for schools during the 2017 autumn term and running an outreach programme from spring 2018.

Schools' Outreach Programme: Spring 2018 onwards

We are currently consulting with teachers on what this offer should look like. To have your say and to help shape the outreach programme please complete our short outreach consultation survey:
