Early years visits

We make learning memorable

We combine education with enjoyment, resulting in effective learning and lasting memories. An educational trip here is a hands-on, fun-packed day that children will never forget.

Gallery visit – £6 per child

Guided by you, students get hands-on and explore the museum. You get a focused hour slot in one of our galleries followed by an hour to explore the rest of the museum. A great opportunity to let imaginations roam free. Choose your gallery focus hour from:

Spark Gallery

  • SoundGarden (under 5’s gallery) – Take part in sensory play exploring how precious nature is.
  • Desert Discovery (under 5’s gallery) – Learn about the different sounds and smells of the desert and share a story!
  • All About Me – Learn all about our bodies, how amazing we all are and what we’re made of!
