Welcome to our Learning and Schools' pages.
Here you can learn more about our Museum-based activities, on-site facilities, and learning resources. The Museum's rich and varied collections allow us to present money as a fascinating cross-curricular topic. We have consulted widely with teachers and other education professionals to develop an inspiring, accessible education service.
What we Offer
Young people visiting the Museum engage in hands-on activities based around our extensive collection of original artefacts. These sessions are led by Museum staff and are free of charge.
We are happy to adapt our sessions for people of all ages and those with additional support needs. We are able to welcome a maximum group size of 32.
We also offer interactive, hands-on digital workshops. These are entirely free of charge and include handling materials that help bring the subject of money to life.
We are continually adding to our online resource: Money Marvels. These videos and activities support the teaching of money as an interdisciplinary topic.
Our Memory Bank reminiscence resources and loan boxes have been created to spark memories and start interesting conversations.
Format of a School Visit
On arrival, the class is given a short introduction to the Museum and the topic of money. The young people are then split into smaller groups and rotate around different activities led by Museum staff. In order to give young people the best possible experience, we recommend that you allow three to four hours for your visit.
We also have a Visual Story and Sensory Map to help prepare for your visit.
For further details, directions and maps, please consult our Pre-Visit Information for Schools. An additional map and travel information can also been found in Find Us.
