School Workshops

Explore our broad range of half-day (90 mins) workshops including interactive sessions in our new museum galleries and exploratory adventures in the magical Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery.

We offer a memorable day out for your group, whether your purpose is to inspire learning at the start of a topic, or to build on knowledge previously learned in class.

Pair two sessions to create a whole day experience and make use of our lunchroom (must be requested at time of booking.)

NB: For Roald Dahl visits the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery Experience takes place in the gallery itself. Other Roald Dahl linked workshops take place in a learning room at the museum.
