Session Details

Upon arrival at the The Beaney, your group will be taken to the Learning Lab where all belongings can be left and then you will be escorted to the galleries to start your mindful journey through the museum.  You take part in some breathing and focusing techniques and will then take time to look more closely at items from the museum’s collection.
