Plan Your Visit - School Trips | Magna Science Adventure Centre | Yorkshire Skip to content

If you would like to visit Magna with your school please use our School Visit Booking Form.

Education Prices are here. To help plan your journey please read our section on Getting Here.

Following your booking we will email you class schedules, an invoice and any other relevant information. A risk assessment and copy of Magna’s public liability insurance are available and can be downloaded from the resources section.

A typical day is organised around Discovery Time for your group to explore the four pavilions: Air, Earth, Fire, Water, and our outdoor facilities, this is self-guided. If you book any workshops they also appear on your group’s schedule, and we will timetable a half-hour slot for your packed lunch. The Big Melt Show and use of our gift shop can be added to your schedule in advance, or you can organise this on arrival at Magna. Forge demonstrations (in the Fire Pavilion) are free, but must be booked in advance.

On arrival we will meet and greet your group. Bags and packed lunches are stored in locked cages, followed by a short health and safety briefing and then you are ready to go.

If your group has particular special needs, please email bookings@magnatrust.co.uk or call us 01709 723116 to discuss your requirements. Magna is fully wheelchair accessible and 121 carers are admitted for free.

Teachers can preview Magna for free at any time during term, weekends or holidays to help plan your visit. On arrival just show your school ID card, school letterhead paper, or a copy of your trip booking letter at Magna’s information desk. Please check our opening times before making a preview visit.
