The Museum runs an award-winning programme for schools, including a successful SEN (special educational needs) scheme, and works with hospitals and community groups as part of ongoing outreach initiatives.

One Thursday each term is set aside as a Quiet Day, for groups with special educational needs only. This autumn term it is Thursday 20 November. All ages of children and young people are welcome to these popular and inclusive days, when the Museum is generally quieter and students have full access to the galleries and interactive displays.
