School groups who have not booked may not be given entry to the Visitor Centre but are encouraged to visit the sculpture and restaurant. 

When booking a school tour you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:

  • Please notify us if the school is unable to attend at least a week beforehand.

  • If you arrive late, your school may forfeit your guided tour and may not be granted access to the Visitor Centre.

  • The Visitor Centre opens at 9 am, and school tours take a minimum of two hours. Learners will not benefit from the experience if the tour is cut short.

  • Teachers are expected to accompany the children with the guide on the tour, and are responsible for the behaviour of the learners during the tour.

  • Teachers are encouraged to visit the Visitor Centre before bringing their learners. We will not charge for this visit for a maximum of two teachers per school visit.

  • Tours are designed for different age groups. 

  • Learners will each be given a booklet to work with in the Visitor Centre, designed for their grade level. Teachers can also use these booklets in follow-up lessons when they return to school.

  • Every learner must bring a pen to complete some written activities in the Visitor Centre.

  • No food is allowed in the Visitor Centre. If learners require a snack break during the tour, this can be negotiated with the guide.
