The main point to keep in mind when planning a trip to a museum with your class, is to book in advance by at least two weeks, so that you are more likely to get the dates and times you want. Many of the museums have online booking systems. Where there is not an online booking system, an e-mail address is given instead.
Get the most from your museum trip with a little pre-visit preparation, such as deciding which material from the website you would like to bring with you for your class – and plan some follow-up project work back in the classroom. The National Museum of Ireland has plenty of material to assist primary and post-primary level education – all available on their website.
