School Visits

In May 2018 we launched our brand-new suite of cross-curricular educational resources, funded with thanks to National Lottery Players.  These resources include a  Handling resource for KS1/KS2 complementing the current museum collection and a Teacher Information Pack for Secondary and Primary exploring the fascinating history and wildlife of Burnby Hall Gardens . As well this we have also built a new learning-zone on site for schools.

We offer free entry to all schools in the YO42 area and discounted entry of £2 per child (teachers and adult helpers free) to schools outside the area. We also offer a free-planning visit for Teacher’s as part of our educational offer. To book a visit please contact us
