Special exhibitions programme for schools

There are many ways for you and your class to make the most of our special exhibitions. Schools can book in alongside the general public for teacher-led visits throughout the run of the exhibition, or book for a school exclusive morning on selected dates. We also offer facilitated visits and sessions alongside selected exhibitions.

Our private views for teachers offer an opportunity for teachers to enjoy an exclusive visit to the exhibition. Plan your visit, enhance your subject knowledge or just explore.

Teaching resources for use in the classroom and for a visit to the exhibitions are also available to download.

I Object: Ian Hislop's search for dissent (6 September 2018 - 20 January 2019)

Dissent is integral to human experience and is the essential driving force behind social and political change. Throughout history, art and everyday objects have been exploited to challenge authority and to mock dominant ideologies. Discover the ways in which people create, use and adapt objects to defy authority figures, laws, institutions and social and religious customs. This exhibition provides opportunity for cross-curricular learning and explores aspects of the National Curriculum's specifications in History and PSHE.
