Language School Groups

  • The Museum welcomes group visits by Institutes that cater for students of English as a foreign language.  
  • Currently we are unable to provide guided tours for Language Schools so all visits are self-directed. 
  • Please note that the Group Leader is asked to remain with the group at all times and we recommend the ratio of leaders to students is 1 to 15.
  • We would recommend that all group who are on self directed visit do some preparatory work in the classroom, have tasks to complete during their visit and do post visit work back it the classroom. 
  • Download and read our Language School Visit Policy language school policy 10.12.08.pdf (0.16 MB, Adobe PDF) before your visit.
  • Make a booking
