School Visits

Welcome to your national collection

Choose from a range of hands-on discovery sessions, interactive workshops and online learning resources to bring art to life for you and your pupils, whatever their age and abilities. If your pupils have additional needs we'll plan a tailor-made visit just for you. 

Plan a visit

  • Book year round - your first visit is free (applies to all EU schools)

  • Travel subsidies are available for schools most in need (enquire when you book)

  • Book four weeks ahead for a guided visit or two weeks ahead for self-led visits and free entry to ticketed exhibitions

  • Check our events listings for Teachers' professional learning opportunities
