Recommended Adult:child ratios

  • Key Stage 1 and 2 – 1:6
  • Key Stage 3-5 – 1:10

It is important that group leaders remain with their groups at all times, as the behaviour and discipline of pupils remain the responsibility of group leaders for the duration of your visit.

We recommend that groups visiting on a self-guided basis do so in smaller groups (maximum of 10 pupils) led by an adult. Accompanying adults and staff do not have to pay admission to the museum however the museum reserves the right to charge admission for any adults over our recommended adult to child ratios.

Workshops and Discovery sessions

All our workshops and tours are led by our expert museum educators. We promote creative thinking, discussion and group work, catering for all types and ages of learners. We enable participants to handle authentic museum objects, dress up and engage with thought-provoking, enjoyable tasks.



Full colour museum trails are available to buy for a small fee. The trails are designed to engage children and provide activities and games to complete when visiting the two permanent museum exhibitions. Trails can be bought on the door or arranged in advance when booking your trip. A museum guide book is also available to buy in the museum gift shop.
