On Wednesdays, the Polar Museum although closed to the general public, will be open for pre-booked school group visits (one morning/one afternoon). Priority will be given to school groups who are visiting as part of a polar project. This arrangement will last until the end of 2021. You will lead your group around the museum accompanied by a member of our education team. We are happy to lend you clipboards and pencils. There is a suggested donation of £1 per child for a class group visit to the Polar Museum.
Please check availability and complete an online booking request form then await confirmation and further information from our education team.

All taught sessions support the National Curriculum. There is a suggested donation of £1 per child for the virtual session.
