Florence Nightingale, the impact of WWI, the science behind modern medicine, and the downright grubby state of a Victorian street — just a taste of the sheer scope of what a day at Thackray offers. We’re here to inspire your students to:
Gain curriculum-based knowledge
Understand about caring for ourselves
Think about careers in healthcare
How Does It Work?
Start planning your trip in advance by visiting the museum for free* — meet our team and design a visit that works for you and your students, from a couple of hours to a full day out.
Explore our 11 galleries with our bespoke trails covering curriculum-based areas of history, science, PSHCE and design. Focus on one theme or cover several in a day.
Dive deeper into the subject with workshops exclusive to your group, from just £2.45 extra per student.
Take the stress out of planning a trip. All workshops with the icon can be brought out of the museum, directly into your classroom.
*Two staff places available per school
