Glasgow Museum welcomes school and nursery groups to all its venues. We offer an extensive programme of curriculum-linked sessions delivered by our experienced team of Learning Assistants and freelance specialists. These sessions use our wonderful collections to develop skills, knowledge and understanding. Browse our brochures on the right hand side of this page to see what’s available this year.
