We offer specially tailored sessions for pupils with a wide range of SENs, and we can discuss your individual requirements if you contact us directly.

Costs and Cancellation Policy

For ALL sessions there is a minimum charge of £32.

To use the classroom over lunch there is a charge of £32 for those schools who wish to book this facility and are only booked for a half-day session. For full day bookings, there is no charge.

If you cancel a booking more than 14 working days before the date of the session there will be no penalty and we will release the date for other schools.

If you cancel a booking less than 14 working days before the date of the session the school will be invoiced for the cost of the visit unless there are exceptional circumstances.

If the museum has to cancel the workshop, you will be informed as soon as possible and asked to re-book at a discounted half price rate, but the museum cannot take responsibility for travel or other costs.
