Activities for Schools


Canterbury Museums & Galleries offer a wide range of creative learning activities and self-guided visits from Early Years, to Primary and Secondary schools, and students in Further and Higher Education. Many of these sessions can be tailored to specific needs.


Please note: Due to exceptional demand for school workshops and education space hire, we encourage schools to book visits and workshops as far in advance as possible and at least one month before your intended visit
