Resources for schools

Following school closures and government recommendations on social distancing, Barnsley Museums are not currently running our award-winning schools programme and each of our five sites is closed. 

In the meantime, we invite you to explore an exciting new suite of digital resources for schools and home learners, linked to each of our five sites and covering many different areas of the primary curriculum. Links below:  

Tell us what you think about our schools resources and let us know what else you would like to see here:

We are currently taking provisional bookings for sessions after October half-term, but will be reviewing when sessions are able to resume in line with government guidance. If you would like to enquire about a future booking, please get in touch using the contact details below. We will publish further details here as we have further information. If you already have a booking with us for the closure period, we will be waiving all cancellation fees.
