Learning Workshops

Our Museums and Galleries may be closed but we can offer virtual learning workshops so you don’t need to miss out on museum learning.

We can offer a virtual learning workshop to classes and children learning at home, at the same time. We host the workshop with your teacher on Zoom to safeguard everyone online during the session.

Alternatively we have pre-recorded sessions of our learning workshops available for teachers to share with their classes learning at home.
