Primary Schools

Due to coronavirus, we will be making changes to our learning offer, please contact us at to discuss your requirements and find out what we can do for you.

The Museum offers inspiring hands-on learning activities for KS1 and KS2 pupils.

As well as booking an Underground Experience, you can choose one of our workshops, which explore rocks and fossils, local history, children working underground and mining inventions.

If you do not wish to book a workshop we have a range of on-site trails and activities to help you explore our inspiring heritage buildings, interactive galleries and Nature Trail. There's so much to see and do to keep your pupils engaged for a full day.

Charges apply for the Underground Tour and Workshops.

To support and enrich learning in the classroom before and after your visit, browse our fantastic learning resources, including loans boxes, factsheets, images and videos.
