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

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

Our new smaller Learning Studio is fitted out as a teaching kitchen where we can 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.

With nine galleries, and exhibitions and activities across the curriculum, including science, food and art, the Garden Museum can be a perfect choice for your school trip.

We know the importance of facilities; our newly refurbished building has 8 toilets, including a disabled toilet and a large learning space which can be used as a classroom and for packed lunches. Our new Learning Studio has a kitchen equipped for small groups to prepare food together. Find out about the sessions offered for schools below.
