The Garden Museum is open! BOOK YOUR VISIT

Home > Learning


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

Our large Clore Learning Space allows us to host sessions for secondary school and sixth form students for the first time. We are also able to offer a wider choice of sessions to primary schools. Our main focus for schools is plant based learning.

Our smaller Learning Studio is fitted out as a teaching kitchen where we incorporate learning about food into our programme, making links with the garden, gardening, the museum collection and the Tradescants.

Our Learning programme aims to be inclusive with hands-on practical activities for schools, families and the community.
