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. 

For more information on Barnsley Museums re-opening please visit:

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 5 sites and covering many different areas of the primary curriculum.  


We are not currently taking onsite bookings until after February half term, and will be reviewing when we can open these again in line with government guidance. If you already have a booking with us for the closure period, we will be waiving all cancellation fees. We will also waive all Covid-19 related cancellation fees for future bookings. 

If you would like to find out more about our programme of school visits with Barnsley Museums which we will be resuming once government restrictions are lifted, please see our brochure below or contact a member of the team whose details are also listed below.
