FAQs: Learning at Woodhorn Museum

Schools can visit Monday – Friday between 10am and 2.45pm.

Woodhorn Museum is closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays during school term so if you would like to bring a large group (60 plus) we recommend that you visit on Monday or Tuesday.

A visit to Woodhorn to take part in Learning Activities costs £5 per pupil for a full day visit and £3 per pupil for a half day visit. 

Accompanying adults are free.

A full day includes three one-hour activities, plus access to a room for lunch.

The cost of off-site workshops is just £2 per pupil.

A self-led visit to Woodhorn Museum is free for pupils and £7 per teacher, or £13 for every two teachers accompanying the group. Advance bookings must be made for self-led groups

Please contact the learning team who will advise you on the best combination of activities to link in with your area of study/age group. 

If you can’t come to us, perhaps we can come to you bringing collections and activities into the classroom? The cost of off-site workshops is just £2 per pupil.

All of our buildings can be accessed by wheelchair, though some have features which are only accessible by stair. As far as possible we have tried to provide an alternative way of experiencing these facilities. An example of this would be the Winding House where stairs limit access but where there is a super sound and video experience at ground level and an opportunity to see the machinery from below.

We have wheelchairs on site that can be pre-booked for your visit.

All of the learning team are experienced at working with children with special educational and behavioural needs.

If you want to discuss support please contact a member of our team.

We encourage schools to do their own risk assessment before a visit, and we provide a Hazards List in the teachers’ information pack which can be downloaded to help with this. Up to two teachers are welcome to come for a free pre-visit, which must be pre-booked through the learning team via learning@museumsnorthumberland.org.uk.

Woodhorn has an excellent gift shop, well stocked with lots of choice for all budgets.

If you let us know that you’d like to visit the shop, we’ll make sure there’s time during lunch or at the end of the visit.

We have PLI up to £5 million. If you require evidence of our policies, insurance and safety and welfare procedures please get in touch.

We have coach parking for up to 8 coaches providing schools with a safe place to get on and off the coach.
