Welcome to the Culture24 Teachers' section. We are a guide to the amazing teaching and learning content on offer from the UK's museums, galleries, libraries, archives, science centres and heritage sites - a great deal of it online and most of it totally free.

Formerly known as 24 Hour Museum, you might already know about us through our safe and fun kids' site Show Me.

We bring you... free resources from the UK museums online.

Visits & Outreach

Our Visits & Outreach section gives you real-world activities and suggestions for class trips.

In addition, venues add to the already impressive set of more than 3,000 events, exhibitions and resources in the database - so you can check out their latest downloads and real-life activities. To get an idea of the breadth of information in the site, click on the 'Search Site' box which sits at the top right of every page. It calls up every piece of data in the system and you can then browse by subject, geographical location or curriculum.

The Places to Go section will help you plan trips and find venues near you.

Art, History and Science on Culture24 are rich sections packed with news, reviews, websites and more, updated daily.
