The Museum offers a variety of learning opportunities for visitors. Although we may currently be closed, we can’t wait for you to come and enjoy our learning programmes. In the meantime, why not take a look at some of our activities to try at home?

From our learning programmes for schools and groups to our community projects and outreach, we hope to help our visitors learn something new on each and every visit. If you would like to find out more about our learning programmes, take a look at the links below.
