  • Develop your students’ enquiry and oracy skills with experiences that can’t be replicated in the classroom.
  • Enhance your teaching in the classroom with memorable activities that support your Cultural Capital aims.
  • Access historical objects and original sources of evidence that aren’t on display to the public.
  • Enjoy exclusive use of the Simmons Learning Room as your base for workshops and lunch space.

How do I book a school visit?
