We create a wide range of opportunities for schools to engage with our amazing collections through a programme of interactive workshops and tours that connects to the NI Curriculum across all stages of learning.

2022/23 Schools Programme out now!

The National Museums NI education team have been busy developing a brand new schools programme of interactive workshops and tours for 2022/23. Take a look at what’s on offer here and book your place via our online booking request form here. We’ve listened to feedback from teachers and introduced some exciting new additions to the programme this year, alongside your firm favourites. And you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve kept our prices low at only £30 or £60 per class, with plenty of opportunities to engage for free! 

Museum on the Move workshops

Our collections are moving beyond the walls of the museum and out into the classroom. See the full range of live and interactive workshops here.

Unfortunately due to huge demand, Museum on the Move applications are now closed for 2022/23.


Plan your school's visit

This autumn, we’re welcoming schools back to our museums to enjoy an exciting programme of interactive workshops on a wide variety of curriculum-linked themes. Find out what’s on offer here and how to book.
