Book Early

We love to see as many school groups as possible enjoying a learning visit to Manchester Museum. To ensure the quality of everyone's visit we have to book all schools in - for both taught sessions and self guided visits. We book up early, with a maximum of 7 groups, and so we encourage you to book at least one school term in advance. To make this process simpler, we now have an online booking enquiry form and a frequently asked questions section.

Museum of Mystery

Why not visit our learning website, the Museum of Mystery from the comfort of your classroom? Covering a variety of topics and using the Museum's collection and expertise, pupils can solve a range of mysteries and build up their case files. The website can be used alone or makes a great pre or post visit activity.
