School bookings for 2021
Milestones Museum is currently closed and we will re-open as soon as we can. Unfortunately we are unable to welcome school visits until at least 8 June 2021.
We are taking bookings from 8 June onwards for all programmes, subject to government guidance in place at that time:
- One school 'bubble' per day
- Maximum of 64 students
Changes or cancellations to bookings due to government guidance on COVID-19 will not be charged.
Alternatively, other learning resources are also available:
- Educational loans boxes are available for hire from our sister site, SEARCH. Milestones loan boxes are being developed for Autumn 2021.
- See our Loans boxes and resources page for classroom-based learning ideas
Please contact us with any queries: email@example.com
Best wishes, Milestones Learning team
