Planning Ahead

School teachers can book a free walk-through of the British Music Experience at a convenient time and date. This visit will provide the opportunity to see our galleries, Discovery Zone and meet our Education Crew. 

To book a site visit contact [email protected]

We also hold regular teacher drop-in days at the weekend, where you can come along and chat to the Education Crew over a cup of coffee.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page or sign up to our Education Newsletter for more details.


You should allow at least 3 hours for your visit, although if you have less time available please let us know and we will aim to accommodate you.  Student time is divided between the workshop, the gallery tour and time in our Gibson Brands Interactive Studio.  Should you wish to stay longer then there will be additional free time in the galleries where students have the option to take one of our quizzes.


If you’re visiting over lunchtime, you can use our Discovery Zone for packed lunches. Please make a note that you will be using this facility on your Booking Form. Please note the room has a limited capacity and therefore larger groups will have to stagger their lunchtimes.  The room can also be used to hold belongings during the visit.


The BME is fully accessible to wheelchair users and there are suitable toilet facilities.


There is a designated coach drop-off point right outside the front of our building, with city coach parking nearby. Longer stay coach parking is available across Liverpool and there is a dedicated coach park at Kings Dock.
