Bury Art Museum offers an exciting range of programmes, some offered in partnership with other local museums, to provide an interesting and memorable educational day trip for education groups and schools. These sessions can be tailored to fit the needs and interests of your group. Teachers and organisers are invited to contact the museum to arrange a pre-visit to assist with planning and risk assessments, and to discuss any access or learning requirements.
