Booking a group visit

Please note that we do not provide pencils or clipboards so please remember to bring your own on the day.

Preparing for your visit

We strongly advise that all teachers and accompanying adults visiting the museum with a group read the following guidance notes. This will give you all the practical information you need to ensure that you have an enjoyable and productive visit, including sample risk assessments.


The museum runs expert Home-Office approved 'issues-based' workshops on drug, alcohol and weapons awareness. The Seized! collection also offers the opportunity to learn about animals in danger and the work of customs. Workshops are free of charge and usually link to the national curriculum through our collections and displays. Many sessions are led by a member of our team, while others are self-led. Booking well in advance is advised.
