School visits – postponed  

Planning your visit

The British Museum is temporarily closed. 

We'll update this page to let you know as soon as we reopen. 

Sign up to our Schools newsletter to receive regular news and updates.


Plan a self-led visit to the Museum to see the permanent collection or special exhibitions, or combine your visit with a facilitated session.

It's a good idea to come and see the Museum before your visit. Whatever your plans, please book in advance via the Ticket Desk to make sure you get the most out of your trip.
