Our learning team offer themed tours and workshops designed to meet the needs the of the Curriculum for Excellence from Early Level to Senior phase. All of our schools programme is based on our collections, with special workshops developed to compliment visiting exhibitions. All education visits are free of charge.

Our staff are experienced in delivering to multi composite classes, and pupils with Additional Support Needs.

Through investigating the artefacts on display in the galleries, pupils will:

  • have opportunities to observe, explore , experiment and play
  • take part through both collaborative and independent learning
  • join in discussions and debates
  • begin to develop the capacity for critical thinking
  • have fun!

Please contact us if you have any questions, or would like to arrange a visit.

Our Schools programme includes details of all the themed topics our staff can cover with visiting pupils. You can dowload the 2019 School programme here.
