Home Educators

We run regular Home Educator days where no other educational groups are booked in for the day, so you and your family can explore the museum and take part in our unique, educational shows and activities.

Our next Home Educator Day is on Thursday 23 January 2020

A great opportunity for Home Educator families to visit the museum at a quieter time (we don’t take any school bookings on this day) and to take part in some of our school programmes developed for pupils in Years 1 through to Year 6 (i.e. 5-11yrs).
