School Visit

Brunel’s SS Great Britain is an ideal location for a day out of the classroom.


The historic ship, Dockyard Museum and beneath the ‘sea’ in the Dry Dock capture the imagination with lots to see, hear, touch, and even smell!

There have been changes put in place to make your visit safe while maintaining access to all areas of the site. We now have a one-way system through our museums, in the dry dock, and on board the ship and numerous hand-sanitising stations across site.

As part of your visit you can book updated interactive workshops and guided tours; a wide range of free resources are available to support pre-and post-visit learning.

We are currently taking bookings for Term 6 and the next academic year; we can run up to 3 workshops a day, Tuesday to Friday (subject to availability). Please email the bookings team at to discuss your visit.
