Discover some of the many stories hidden amongst the Museum’s collection of objects. Join us for storytelling, singing, movement and making at one of our 45-minute workshops for Foundation Stage schools. These sessions are aimed at children aged 3-5 years and are often booked by nursery and children’s centre groups as well as schools. They are suitable for a maximum of 30 children. The sessions vary in themes, type of activity and length in order to fit in with different topics that groups might be focussing on.

How to book

The Museum is free to visit however, workshops are charged at £2.50 per child plus VAT. 

If your school is based within Islington, workshops can be arranged free of charge through 11 by 11. The Museum’s participation in this scheme is supported by a grant from The Goldsmiths’ Company Charity.

For Greater London schools for whom the cost of a workshop may be prohibitive (e.g. schools with a high number of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium), please contact us as it may be possible to waive the charge

Please note that booking is essential even for self-guided visits.

Early years and foundation stage workshops last for 1 hour and can be arranged on Mondays and Tuesdays. For more information or to book, please contact us
