If you would like to arrange a group visit to the Migration Museum (for groups of 10 or more), you can do so via the following ways:
Our monthly Coffee Mornings are a great opportunity for groups to visit the Migration Museum with a guide. Featuring an introduction from one of our staff, an informal workshop and a cup of tea or coffee, visitors will receive more information about the exhibition and our work, and have the chance to meet with people from other groups.
Coffee mornings take place on the third Friday of every month, from 10am–12noon. They’re free and all are welcome. If you’re a group leader and would like to make a booking, please fill in our Coffee Morning online enquiry form, and we will get back to you to confirm your booking. If you have any problems using the form, please email email@example.com.
Self-guided group visits
If you are visiting with a group of 10 or more, and are unable to attend one of our Coffee Mornings, you can book a self-guided visit by clicking here and filling out our Self-Guided Group Visit online booking form. If you have any problems using the form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that regrettably, at this time, we are unable to offer full guided tours to groups outside of our Coffee Mornings due to staffing.
School, college and university visits
Our education team facilitates exploration of our exhibitions and engages students in discussions on key themes including immigration, identity, home and belonging.
Our facilitated school and university workshops last approximately two hours and are available Wednesday–Sunday for students in years 6–13, as well as university groups. Education groups are also welcome to arrange self-directed visits to our museum during exhibition opening hours (Wednesday–Sunday, 11am–5pm).
