KS1 School Visits

The Museum is an inspiring setting for learning, offering a range of fun and informative hands-on sessions and online resources. Visits are up to two hours long and include a 45-minute handling workshop and a self-guided trail in the Museum. Sessions involve groupwork, discussion and problem-solving activities based on handling Museum specimens, and are linked to the national curriculum. Please book to arrange your visit.

Bugs and their Habitats

What makes a bug a bug? We investigate a range of different insects and minibeasts, both carnivores and herbivores, exploring how they grow, which microhabitats they inhabit and the roles that they each play. Examine real Museum specimens and have a go at handling a live bug!
