Education packs for teachers

Education documents linked to the school curriculum from primary to secondary level are provided to teachers in the form of worksheets and education packs, so that they can properly prepare for their visit.
These documents have been produced by a National Education expert teacher and are particularly suitable for the History, History of Art, French and Classics syllabuses.
These resources also allow teachers to visit the museum with their class on an independent basis, following the students’ pace.

For self-guided visits, entry and reservation are free of charge, but must be booked so that school groups can be catered for adequately.
