Coventry Transport Museum makes the perfect learning environment for school or family visits.

Prices & Offers for Schools 

Museums and Schools

We are involved in an exciting partnership with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, to help Primary school teachers to arrange more museum visits, and bring the curriculum to life for their groups.

Using funding from the Arts Council and the Department for Education, we are working to increase the number of primary schools taking part in high quality educational visits to museums in Coventry.

By encouraging schools to get pupils out of the classroom and into museums, together we will spark young people’s curiosity and encourage a lifelong passion for culture and learning.
