Services for school and other educational groups

It is free to bring a group to Godalming Museum

Please let us know that you are coming so that we can make sure you are not double-booked with another group.  The museum is not large and we suggest no more than 30 children in it at one time

If you are walking to the museum, let us know and we can provide a custom-made self-guided tour, highlighting points of interest on your route.  There is no charge for this, but we do need a couple of weeks’ notice.
