Learn in a real working environment at the museum

The Work Experience placements involve a range of activities and provide a general overview of the workings of a museum across a variety of departments. They run for 5 days (Monday-Friday) and are open to young people aged 14-18.

Due to the high number of applications for our work experience programme, all students are required to attend our Work Experience Insight Day. This is to provide students with a greater awareness of the museum prior to applying for a work experience placement. Students will have the opportunity to meet with staff, hear about the departments taking part in the programme and learn more about the career paths of those who will be working with them during their placement.
