School Trips

We are no longer taking school bookings until further notice. In light of the developing situation with the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our free Education Service for the foreseeable future. Our priority is the welfare and health of our visitors, our staff and their loved ones.

Thank you for your patience as we negotiate this current uncertainty.

The Museum of Classical Archaeology is an ideal for school trips. With our free education service, we have something to offers students of all ages. Our Cambridge museum is a great place to bring primary school groups, especially those studying the Ancient Greeks or Romans at Key Stage 2. We can also support both the Classics and the Art curriculum at secondary level: students studying the ancient world will benefit from student tours, while those studying art can hone their drawing skills to their heart's content. So why not bring your students in to see us on a school group trip?

Our Education and Outreach Coordinator, Justyna Ladosz, is happy to work with you to plan your school trip. Justyna can lead the group or, if you prefer, you can self-lead: it's up to you. Museum-led sessions are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only.

Planning your Visit

The Museum is well-located for Cambridge schools, but we know it's sometimes a little tricky if you're travelling to us from further afield. So why not choose to combine your school group trip with a visit to one of the other University of Cambridge Museums? There are nine University Museums and Collections in total, and each will make a fun day out for your students – the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology  pair up particularly well with school trips to our Museum.

How to Book

To make a booking, please use our online booking request form.

Our Education and Outreach Coordinator, Justyna Ladosz, will be in touch to answer any questions or discuss your options in advance of your visit.

Please note, we ask that all school trips are booked in at least a week in advance. Unbooked groups may be turned away at the door. Justyna is available to lead visits on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only. Groups are welcome to self-lead on Fridays.

We want your school group to have fun on your visit to us, but unfortunately we also have to make sure our collection is looked after. Groups who have to be repeatedly warned about behaviour may be asked to leave.


Before your Visit

While you're planning your school trip, make sure you take a look at our Teacher's Pack – it includes helpful guidelines so that you can make the most of your visit.

We do ask that you let us know in advance of your visit if anyone in your party has a mobility issue or impairment. We have accessiblity solutions in place, but knowing in advance helps us to plan in case anything goes awry - and gives you peace of mind. Please get in touch to discuss any concerns.
