Connect with our artists, writers and historians through interactive museum visits and online sessions designed for KS1-2. Pupils can explore art in detail, discuss ideas within the class, and produce creative responses through drawing and writing.
Sessions are free for UK schools and available to book Monday to Friday, between 10.00 and 15.00 during school term. We recommend one session per class, and can accommodate up to two classes simultaneously. Follow the booking link on each page for more information, and see our pre-visit guidance.
Our range of teacher resources draw links between the curriculum and our collection, providing key object information, activity ideas and supporting materials.

Resources for teachers
Museums Ambassadors engages Year 5-6 pupils through special after-school projects based at the museum.
Each term, 12 pupils from a local primary school embark on an in-depth, eight-week project. Activities are designed to stimulate discussion, foster group working, introduce new creative skills, and support pupils to learn about art and history outside the classroom.
Our aim is for each pupil to develop a lifelong love of museums, helping them to become true ambassadors.
A condensed Museum Ambassadors programme is also open to SEND schools.
