Schools and youth groups
Our Youth Programme offers study days,
tours, events and projects with schools and youth groups.
What we can offer you at Wellcome Collection
Our programme is aimed at young people aged 14–19.
We're focused on providing your visiting group with a high-quality,
engaging experience – for free, and on a date
that suits you. We're happy to adapt sessions to fulfil your needs
in meeting curriculum links and learning outcomes.

Help us shape our plans for a new exhibition and youth projects exploring ideas about sex - relationships, emotions, our sense of identity; past and present, and in different cultures.
We have a selection of free study days on offer. One supporting our temporary exhibition programme, and others exploring themes and objects from the permanent galleries and wider collection.
Events for young people, and events designed and delivered by young people for the Wellcome Collection audience.
Tours of our temporary exhibitions and/or permanent galleries will inspire young people to engage with what it means to be human in a "venue where science, art and culture converge" ('Nature' magazine).
Arrange an introductory visit to the world-famous Wellcome Library for older students wishing to use the Library for individual research and study.
