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.

Join us for our Home Educator day where no other educational groups are booked in! 

Our next event on Wednesday 11th May 2022 is now LIVE for bookings.

Click the Bookwhen link here to reserve your tickets today.

To be the first to hear about our events, join our Home Educator Mailing list at the bottom of this page.

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).
