Learn about, be inspired by and get involved in ideas worth fighting for; ideas such as equality, social justice, co-operation, and a fair world for all.
We are here to help you plan a visit to the museum for your school or community group. On Wednesdays and Thursdays you can pre-book for a group of up to 45 to visit the museum.
There is a range of self-guided trails available that will add to your group’s learning experience. We’ll welcome you upon arrival, ensure you have details of the latest exhibitions and activities, and can arrange for a picnic space to be reserved for you.
Please note that groups are not guaranteed entry without pre-booking their visit.Find out more

Our Learning Team is currently working on a project that will see the relaunch of PHM’s Learning Programme. New onsite and online experiences, workshops and outreach work will be part of the result and we’ll be sharing updates as the project progresses.
We are looking at and reviewing every element of our learning programmes working with partners and audiences to ensure that we continue to empower people with an understanding of how change can be achieved through individual, social and political activity. If you work with early years, school, college, university, community or adult learning groups and you’d like to get involved please email email@example.com
Whilst this project is being developed schools and community groups will be able to continue to visit PHM on a bookable self-guided group visit.
The museum is Family Friendly throughout, with hands-on activities in every gallery and throughout the building for all visitors to enjoy. A range of online resources are available for anyone to access from anywhere.Family favourites
