School bookings during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We are not currently taking bookings for visits to the Museum until January 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However we are prepared to come into schools to deliver adapted workshops on 5 of our main themes; Egyptians, Greeks, Dinosaurs and Fossils, Stone Age and Art Detectives. We have increased our Loan Boxes Catalogue so there are more options of themes that can be borrowed. Loans are for a fixed period with a minimum of a week between loans to allow for safe quarantining and cleaning of the objects. To book a loan box or a visit by us to you, please email email@example.com.

We offer a range of one-hour workshops linked to areas of the National Curriculum including: History Science Literacy and art Selected craft sessions are also available to complement the main workshops.
