Education

Our education programme is central to all we do. Since May 2017, we have welcomed more than 3,000 young people from primary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities to our Migration Museum at The Workshop in Lambeth.

We also have great take up of our workshops and exhibition tours with international schools and university study abroad programmes. We are now taking bookings for our exciting upcoming exhibition Room to Breathe that will run from November 1 until summer 2019. Book soon to avoid disappointment!
