School & preschool


Bring your class to the museum!

Teachers are welcome to book a visit to the Museum of Evolution with their classes. There is no entrance fee for pre-booked school groups unless you take a guided tour.

All school visits, including university courses, must be booked at least a week in advance.

Guided tours

A guided tour lead by one of our museum educators takes about 40 minutes. There can be up to 30 participants in the group. Contact us to discuss which part of the exhibitions you want to see.

Preschool tours

A preschool tour is short (about 20 minutes) and adapted to interaction with preschool children. There can be up to 15 children in the group. We recommend that you book extra time to explore the museum on your own after the tour.
