Learning

Coventry Transport Museum makes the perfect learning environment for school or family visits.

Discount Offers for Schools

We currently have two fantastic value offers for school visits

Schools in Museums

We are involved in an exciting partnership with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, to help Primary school teachers to arrange more museum visits, and bring the curriculum to life for their groups.

Using funding from the Arts Council and the Department for Education, we are working to increase the number of primary schools taking part in high quality educational visits to museums in Coventry.

By encouraging schools to get pupils out of the classroom and into museums, together we will spark young people’s curiosity and encourage a lifelong passion for culture and learning.

What’s on offer

Pay just £5.00 per pupil* and your class will enjoy:

  • Two education sessions at Coventry museums, over the course of either one or two days (days do not have to be adjacent – they can be taken at any time during the school year)**
  • Travel bursary of up to £200*, to subsidise transport costs for visits to the museums. 
  • FREE use of a lunch space

* While funding lasts

** Each visit must consist of the same pupils

Find out what workshops are available with the bursary.
