Cancellations and Rescheduling

The Museum Learning Services operate a 3 week cancellation period. Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to cancel or reschedule your session date. Failure to do so will lead to the Museum treating your booking as confirmed, and any subsequent cancellation will be treated as short notice and a fee may be incurred.
