We're having to do things a little differently for schools at the moment. Here's what we can offer – to engage and inspire while staying as safe as possible.
Ways to get involved
During the summer term we're providing for schools in four main ways:
- Providing online resources to engage students and to make it easier to find our historical material
- Running live streams that bring museum stories, displays and people to classrooms and homes
- Offering museum sessions in schools in line with your risk assessments
- Offering school visits to our museums in a limited and safe way.
And we’ve put measures in place so that what we offer is COVID-secure. You can read our risk assessment guidance to find out more.
Book a session

Book a museum visit
We’re running two exclusive schools-only days for primary and SEND school groups on the following dates:
- Tuesday 29 June 2021 at the Museum of London
- Tuesday 6 July 2021 at the Museum of London Docklands
Places are limited so fill out an expression of interest form as soon as possible.
Secondary school, sixth form, college or home school groups can book a slot for a self-led visit at either of our museums from Wednesday-Friday. We are also offering 10am booking slots for primary school groups visiting the Museum of London only. Read our risk assessment guidance before you fill out a booking request form.
Walk-up groups will not be admitted; you must book a timed slot for your school visit in advance.
Get in touch
If you have any questions, email [email protected] and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
And don’t forget to join our Teachers' Network to stay up to date on all the latest news from our schools team.
Topics we're focusing on
We've temporarily reduced the number of topics in our programme to ensure that everything we offer can be suitably tailored to the circumstances.
For primary schools
We'll mainly be focusing on three of our most popular topics:
For secondary schools
We'd like to support your History, PSHE and RSE teaching by focusing on these topics:
For SEND schools
We know that you'll have specific needs, and we’d love to know how we can best support you.
For supplementary schools
We know that lockdown has been hard for many volunteer-run organisations. We're keen to help.
