Sessions for special schools
Discover the British Museum collection and building in a series of workshops, each focusing on one of four senses.
Tailored specifically for students with special educational needs, students can experience ancient Greece, Egypt, the Vikings, Roman Britain or medieval Britain through sight, sound, smell and touch with these facilitated sessions.
In these tailor-made workshops, students use digital technology and multi-sensory activities to explore the collection.
Available for visually impaired students for the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery (Room 4) and the Parthenon sculptures (Room 18). No pre-booking required. Collect from the Ford Centre for Young Visitors when you arrive at the Museum.
Funded by the Wolfson Foundation, Sensory Journeys is a programme of four linked workshops which take students on a learning journey using multi-sensory approaches.
