School Visits & Workshops
Canterbury Museums & Galleries has been delivering fun and inspiring school’s workshops for over 20 years, bringing subjects to life as part of a rich, cross-curricular experience.
Booking a Schools Workshop with us gives your pupils the unique opportunity to learn alongside a collection of thousands of inspirational artefacts and works of art.
We believe in learning through play and our activities are designed to stimulate curiosity, collaboration and creativity. Through handling real artefacts and investigating our collections your class or group can develop a range of enquiry-based learning skills.
Our dedicated Learning team will work with you to ensure you get the most from your visit, so whether you are investigating Victorian Toys, exploring Roman mosaics, creating art or looking to discover some incredible collections from around the globe, we have a workshop to suit your needs.
The Beaney has received a 2023 Sandford Award.
“The Beaney’s fascinating, varied collections and attractive galleries provide inspiration for a range of engaging school and wellbeing programmes. Using the Collections, the Learning team delivers high quality workshops and activities for visiting groups. The schools and Learning provision is an exemplar of good practice. Well done to all the staff!”
