Group visits for 2017/2018 session

Having barely drawn breath following a very busy 3 months of school visits, we have started to take class bookings for the 2017/2018 session.  Class visits to John Muir’s Birthplace can be undertaken at any time of year and typically last around 1.5 – 2 hours, including an introduction, time to explore all 3 floors of information on John Muir and his legacy, and a feedback session at the end, where the children get the opportunity to share their learning.

Tracy Robertson, Visitor Services Officer, said ‘It has been a hectic few months, with over 1500 schoolchildren visiting John Muir’s Birthplace, usually as part of East Lothian’s John Muir Citizenship Project or as part of a John Muir Award Group.  We enjoy the children’s excitement and enthusiasm when they come to us, and no 2 groups are the same, which keeps the staff on our toes!’

Groups wanting to visit during the 2017/2018 session are advised to book early to avoid disappointment, please call 01368 865899 or email museumseast@eastlothian.gov.uk for further information.
