  Educational visits  

School visits are welcome and we can cater for all age groups.
Visits can be arranged on weekdays throughout the year by telephone on 020 8947 2825.

We need to know:
• The date and time of the visit
• The name of the School
• A contact name and telephone number
• The number of children and adults visiting
• The approximate ages of the children
• Boys, girls or mixed
• If you require teacher’s notes
• If the visit relates to any current work in school
• If the children will be buying souvenirs

School visits are charged at £2 per child with accompanying staff free. There is a minimum charge of £25.

We provide direct teaching using qualified staff and classes are usually divided into groups of not more than 15 so that they can see and handle the exhibits without overcrowding. Approximately 1 hour should be allowed for a visit by one class. If more than one class is brought the other can visit the Information Centre nearby or walk on the Common before changing over. (Some schools within a reasonable distance find it possible to shuttle children by bus). There is parking space for cars and coaches close to the museum. If using public transport the nearest bus stop is about 1/4 mile from the museum (see How to Get There). There are no facilities for eating lunch in the Museum but there is a café adjoining and in summer the Commons provide a good site for picnics
