Families & educators
For now, all school group bookings are on hold due to COVID-19. When we reopen bookings, all school visits to the Museum must be booked in advance. Overcrowding in galleries can be a problem at peak times and reduces enjoyment and educational benefits for both school groups and other visitors. To ensure fairness, we require all bookings requests to be made by email using this form and, where possible, please plan to book at least two weeks in advance.
We've got some handy resources to inspire your students on their learning journey. When we re-open school bookings, discovery cases will provide them with a hands on experience, allowing them to remove and touch specimens safely at school.
Invite the Museum into your classroom and get up close and personal with a case of artefacts and specimens. The Discovery Cases provide students with a hands-on experience as they are able to remove and touch many of the items in the cases.
