The Whipple Museum can offer on-site learning sessions from early years to adult groups on Thursdays and Fridays, subject to availability. Our maximum group size is 45 for taught sessions and 30 for self-led groups. Taught sessions typically last up to an hour and a half and include practical activities, information about objects and a chance to ask questions. Home educating families are welcome to book any of the schools sessions, there are no minimum numbers. You are also welcome to visit the museum as a self-led group on other days of the week.
