We are currently able to provide both onsite and online Learning Workshops. Read on to see if we can help subsidise your transport costs up to £250.

We are pleased to announce our onsite workshops are back at the museum and available for school bookings. Workshops and interactive and hands-on learning experience focused on STEM, Social Studies and Expressive Arts inspired by objects and stories from the museum’s collection.

Bring your class to our museums in Irvine and Dumbarton and we can help subsidise your transport costs up to £250, this covers the cost of private hire transport and ferries for the journey to and from the museum. This subsidy is available for primary schools and EYC in East Ayrshire, Inverclyde, North Ayrshire, South Ayrshire and Inverclyde for visits to our Irvine Museum and those in Argyll and Bute, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, Stirling and West Dunbartonshire for visits to our Dumbarton museum.

Our fantastic cross-curricular ‘Ship to Shore Online Learning Workshops’ centre on the Scottish Maritime Museum’s most popular Curriculum for Excellence linked STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activities. We offer these sessions to school around both our Irvine and Dumbarton sites. Schools around our Dumbarton museum (Argyll and Bute, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, Stirling, & West Dunbartonshire) are eligible for free workshops through funding.
