Two Session Travel Bursary
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.

- Two education sessions at Coventry museums. These can take place at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry Transport Museum or a combination of both on the same day.
