We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to our Somerset Heritage Schools Programme for the autumn term.

In school workshops are available from 7 September and workshops onsite at our three museums will commence from Monday 14 September. We will also be delivering loan objects to schools for use in the classroom from the start of the autumn term.

Because of Covid-19 we’re making some changes to the way we operate, including having schools’ only days at our museums, rigorous cleaning of our sites and quarantining objects after they have been handled.

You’ll notice other changes at our museums too, including hand-sanitiser stations, screens, signage and floor guides, which are intended to ensure a safe environment for visitors and staff.
