We understand the importance of good quality school tours and trips in Liverpool. They have to engage, encourage and entertain children so they learn while they’re having fun. Our vision for formal learning is that we aim to engage and support schools in their learning by creating meaningful experiences to inform and inspire, drawing on our collections, buildings and cutting edge research. To help you plan your visit to Liverpool we offer a range of cross-curricular workshops and self-guided resources at the VG&M developed specifically for schools.

Children love the Victoria Gallery & Museum. When they walk through the doors they can’t help but look up and take in the scale of our building. After all, it’s even more impressive when you’re little.
