Primary schools

We offer a wide range of fun, cross-curricular activities that draw on the Museum's rich collections from around the world. Objects are always at the heart of children's learning experiences be it a guided trail, hands-on workshop or self-guided trail | Subscribe to the Primary School Newsletter

We recommend that primary school visits are limited to two hours, and that longer visits include time at other museums and galleries in Oxford.

Booking is essential for all school visits, including self-guided visits. Visits to the University Museum of Natural History must be booked separately.
