Visit a CPK Museum

Visit Perth & Kinross Museums & Galleries with your class!

Explore local and world heritage through the fascinating collections at Perth & Kinross Museums & Galleries!

The school offer at CPK’s Museums and Galleries is firmly grounded in Curriculum for Excellence. Workshops at the Museum support pupil development within the four capacities, and increase awareness of different types of resources and evidence of the past. Varied activities support a range of different learning styles and workshops give pupils the opportunity to exercise their curiosity and creativity in thinking and learning.

Information on the 2017/18 offer will be published here soon.

Location

Most of our school workshops are delivered at Perth Museum and Art Gallery. Some can be delivered to a small group at The Fergusson Gallery or can be split between the two. Small group tailored workshops may also be delivered at Alyth Museum; please get in touch to enquire about visits to Alyth.

Dates and Times

The regular programme included in this document is available all year round. Workshops can take place any time between 10am and 3pm (10-12 or 12:30-2:30 is standard). Classes are welcome to stay longer than the booked workshop, eat lunch in the Lecture Hall and look around the rest of the Museum self-guided. Resources are available to download from the Teacher Resources page to help pupils explore the Museum.

Numbers

The maximum number for one workshop is 33 pupils. For larger groups we can deliver a morning workshop for half the group while the other half does self-guided activities in the museum and then swap over for the afternoon.

Booking

We suggest a donation of £1 per pupil for visits to the Museum.
