The Museum offers a range of learning experiences for different audiences through structured sessions or self-guided visits. From early years children learning about dinosaurs to specialist groups accessing the collections for study, the education team and collections staff can support your visit.

Secondary school study days

Each year, the Museum hosts a number of study days for Key Stages 4 to 5 (and Christmas lectures for Key Stage 3). Here are the sessions we have planned for 2019. We'll update this page with more information closer to the event.
