Make a booking
Educational group visits need to be pre-booked, even if you don't intend to take part in any of our events or activities. To book, please follow these steps:
Step 1 - plan what you'd like to do
Browse Things to Do in the Museum and make a note of what you would like to include in your visit. Use the filter to find things suitable for your age group and relevant to your topic or subject area.
Don't try to do too much in a day and allow time for lunch, toilet breaks and a visit to the Shop.
Our hands-on galleries (Launchpad, The Garden and Pattern Pod) are very popular so we allow a maximum of two hands-on galleries per visit.
Step 2 - check what's on and when
Use the Educators' calendar to check that your chosen activities are scheduled on the day of your visit. Some events are only available on certain days. Please be aware that the calendar does not reflect actual availability of places.
Step 3 - make your booking
Call us on 020 7942 4777. We'll help you plan your itinerary and we will confirm your booking there and then over the phone.
Our lines are open from 8.45am - 5.00pm on Mondays to Thursdays, and 8.45am - 3.00pm on Fridays. (Times may change during school holiday periods or for staff training.)
Alternatively use the Visit Request Form to tell us when you'd like to visit and what you'd like to include in your itinerary.
Please note that we do not take provisonal bookings.
Step 4 - check your booking
We will always send an email confirming your booking - please read it carefully and tell us if it's not as you expected.
If you don't receive our email within two days, please check your Spam folder in the first instance, then contact us on 020 7942 4777 and we will resend the information.
Please remember that our Booking terms apply if your itinerary includes charged activities.
