Home Ed Day

Our activities on Home Ed Days cater for a wider range of age groups than our usual school events, allowing the inclusion of the whole family.

While the content and style of each session is targeted for a particular age group (see below), older and younger siblings are welcome to attend.

Choose from the sessions on offer on each date, and tell us about any other activities you’d like to include in your visit. We’ve recommended a few galleries and an IMAX film further down the page, but you see lots more here. 

What's on

Prices and booking

Places for the sessions listed above cost £4 per child. We would like to accommodate as many children as possible, so we prefer not to exceed a 1:1 ratio for adults to children. However, additional adults can attend for £4 each.

If you are booking for a group, please bring at least one adult for every eight children to ensure their health and safety.

If you are bringing older or younger children to the paid-for sessions, please be mindful that the content may not be engaging for them, and restless behaviour can affect the enjoyment of others. We will be happy to recommend other things to do that might be more relevant for their age.

Charges apply for all children attending the paid-for sessions (including older and younger siblings) , unless they will be sitting on an adult’s lap.

To book, call us on 020 7942 4777. Payment is due by card at the time of booking, so please have your credit or debit card to hand. Terms and Conditions apply.

We anticipate that places will fill quickly, so we recommend booking in good time. Bookings will close at midday two working days beforehand.

Other things to see and do

To complement the events, we’ve recommended some other things to see and do around the museum. Please tell us if you’d like to include them in your visit itinerary.
