Digital schools sessions

Let us bring our museums to your classroom.

Digital Schools Sessions

Our Digital Schools Sessions bring the museum to your class. Our free sessions are led by our team of Enablers and cover the topics most requested by teachers, such as Second World War at the National Museum of Flight, ancient Egypt, Dinosaurs and the Romans

How they work 

Each Microsoft Teams session will give pupils the unique opportunity to see museum objects up close and find out their stories. Pupils can also ask questions and take part in different activities before and after the session. 

See our FAQs for full information about our sessions.
