Education

Our education programme is central to all we do at the Migration Museum Project. From May 2017 we have welcomed 700 young people from schools, colleges, and universities to our Migration Museum at The Workshop, Lambeth.

We also have great take up of our workshops to international schools and university study abroad programmes. Get in touch if you would like to book your group in.

We are currently running an exhibition competition with the OCR exam board. If you are teaching the new British migration history units, get in touch. It might help to motivate your pupils when you hear that the prize is for the winning team to visit New York City to see Ellis Island and our friends at the Tenement Museum!

To find out more about all the opportunities we have on offer or to book a schools or university visit or workshop, please email our Education Officer, Liberty Melly at liberty@migrationmuseum.org or our Head of Learning and Partnerships, Emily Miller at emily@migrationmuseum.org.
