We offer complimentary adult tickets for teachers accompanying a school group within the recommend adult-to-pupil ratios below:
1:5 for Primary Schools
1:10 for Secondary Schools
However, if your group requires a lower ratio, please discuss this with our Education Team when you make your booking. We will offer free teacher tickets for any extra adults if pupils require 1:1 Support.
Around certain large events (for example British Grand Prix) we have limitations to our education offer. We do not take education bookings on the British Grand Prix weekend.
When Education groups arrive they will be met by one of our team. They will have a short welcome, time to visit the toilet and drop off bags before activities start. Late arrival may result in your taught sessions being shortened.
There is a dedicated lunch area situated on the first floor. This room has limited capacity and so can only be guaranteed for those booking a workshop session.
Trolleys are available for pupils to store their coats, bags and lunch boxes whilst visiting us. These are located on the first floor. Items are left at owners’ risk.
The gift shop is located on the ground floor. Pupils are welcome to visit the shop as part of their day. We have a pocket money collection available which includes pens, pencils and key rings. We ask that a maximum of 30 pupils visit the shop at one time.
We offer one free teacher planning visit for up to two teachers for every school group which has booked to visit Silverstone Museum. All teacher planning visits must be booked in advance by contacting the Education Team once your booking has been confirmed.
We highly recommend that all teachers take advantage of the planning visit, as it helps to ensure that the final visit with your group goes as smoothly as possible. A convenient date and time for your planning visit can be arranged with our Education Team when you make your booking.
Silverstone Museum is fully wheelchair accessible, and we also have facilities and additional space available for those who require it. Please contact our Education Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your group’s requirements, and we’ll be happy to discuss ways in which we can support your visit.

This visit will take approximately 4 hours (usually 10:00 – 14:00) and guarantees you a time slot in our schools lunch space on the first floor.

Yes, we do. Our exhibition visits are self-led and place the emphasis on the teacher to lead their group through our 4000m2 exhibition and outdoor heritage track trail. There are resources available to support teachers on their journey through the exhibition.
The Heritage Track Trail can be accessed via the back of the building, is subject to availability and can be visited at any time. This is an outdoor activity and so we suggest your groups come prepared for the weather conditions should they wish to explore this area e.g. suitable footwear and coats in winter.
This visit will take approximately 2-3 hours (half-day visit) and does not guarantee use of our schools lunch space.
