The Garden Museum is open! BOOK YOUR VISIT

Home » Learning


Learning is at the centre of what we do at the Garden Museum.

Our Learning programme aims to be inclusive and accessible with hands-on activities for schools, families and the community centred around art, cooking and gardening sessions.

Our large Clore Learning Space allows us to host school visits from primary, secondary and sixth form students focused on learning plant science.

Our smaller Learning Studio is fitted out as a teaching kitchen where we hold food learning classes for both children and adults, making links with the garden, gardening, the museum collection and early ‘plant hunters’ such as the Tradescants.

Online Learning through the Seasons

We have created an online learning resource that focuses on a seasonal ingredient each month, and links this together with items in the Museum’s Collection and Archive along with information and activities around food, science, art and horticulture.

Public Learning Events

We organise a variety of learning events for children and families as well as adults.  See below for a list of our upcoming events.
