Prices & Offers for Schools
2020/21 School Year
We are looking forward to welcoming school groups back to our sites after this period of lockdown. Our Learning Team have been working hard to adapt our educational programme to ensure we can offer you our usual high quality and exciting activities, whilst introducing new measures, following government guidance, to provide a safe environment for you, your pupils and our staff.
We are taking bookings for facilitated onsite visits, but we are unable to accept self-led visits to our museums by school groups.
- We are now limiting school visits to one class per day (maximum of 34 pupils).
- We now require a minimum of 4 adults to attend the visit with your class.
- At the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and Coventry Transport Museum your class will be divided in half upon arrival to reduce the number of children moving around the building at any one time.
- New risk assessments are available for each of our sites
We are also developing a virtual schools offer, enabling us to bring our activities direct to your school through online media. For the latest developments from the Learning Team please follow our new Twitter page: @CovMuseumsLearn

Museums and Schools
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.
Please click here to download a risk assessment form.
Please note that all schools must book before their visit.
Any school that visits without booking will be required to pay an admission price of £7 per child and £10.50 for adults.
Please note there is a 33% charge for cancellations within one month of the visit and 100% charge for a cancellation on the day, except for circumstances beyond your control.
