Online Booking Form: Group Visits

Requesting a Group Visit

To request a group booking, please complete the form below. Groups should be booked at least one week in advance.

Groups are limited to a maximum of two per day and only one group can use the Cast Gallery at a time.  

Groups may book in Tuesday-Friday, and on Saturdays during term-time.

Facilitated visits are available Tuesday-Thursday but not on Fridays and Saturdays. Minimum group size for a facilitated visit is 10. For more information on the facilitated learning sessions offered by our Education and Outreach Coordinator, please visit the following pages:

KS2 sessions on the ancient Greeks and/or Romans

Tours for A level/secondary school students studying the ancient world

Art and drawing groups

Special interest group bookings

Hidden Tales self-guided school visit

We're afraid that a lunch room cannot be provided on site. We recommend that groups eat on Queens' Backs at the crossroads of Sidgwick Avenue and Silver Street if the weather is fine. In the event of bad weather, the Museum and departments nearby are sadly unable to provide an indoor space for lunch. 


Greek Play: 16-19 October 2019

Please note, we are offering timed 50 minute sessions for led tours or self-led visits on the mornings of this year's Greek play, in order to accommodate as many school groups as possible. Booking is essential: unbooked groups may need to be turned away at the door.

Slots will start on the hour at the following times: 10am, 11am, 12pm.

This year's Greek play is Oedipus at Colonus. Tickets can be booked through the Cambridge Arts Theatre.
