The Children’s University
NLA are proud to be a Learning Destination for The Childrens’ University – a national scheme to encourage children to explore their city. The Children's University Trust (CU) is a charitable trust that provides 5 to 14 year olds exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside normal school hours. Children enrolled on CU can visit the NLA galleries, complete our children's trail of the New London Model and have their passport stamped by our front of house team.
