Primary School Visits
The Museum presents one temporary exhibition at one time, with limited space within our exhibition gallery. We advise that groups visiting the Museum are limited to a maximum of 25 individuals at one time. For primary school groups of students under 12 years of age, we require one adult supervisor to attend per 10 children visiting, and we also ask that groups book a short exhibition tour of 20 minutes to allow students to proactively engage with the exhibition content. The Museum is very happy to work with teachers and group organisers in order to tailor the theme of the tour to suit.
Students under 12: Free
Adult supervisor (at least 1 per 10 students): £9
Primary school tour (30mins): £30 per tour
