4Site: museum-based learning for schools

4Site is a one stop cultural shop for all schools in Swansea. Check out the exciting range of work and the exhibitions going on at the Dylan Thomas Centre, the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea Museum, and the West Glamorgan Archive Service.


What 4Site offers

We offer a simple way of accessing the Dylan Thomas Centre, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea Museum, and the West Glamorgan Archive Service.

4Site sessions are led by artist educators, linking the collection displays and exhibitions to key stage themes through a range of creative approaches and workshops.

4Site membership also includes access to the latest arts funding information, network news, and an invitation to a CPD event, ensuring your schools is up to date.

How to book

We have a dedicated contact at each venue for your visit, who can advise about any specific requirements you may have regarding your pupils.

How to pay

Payment for 4Site membership is made through a 'Payment Journal Transaction', if you are part of Swansea Schools service, so no unnecessary paperwork is needed. Alternatively, if your school is from outside the region, an invoice can be arranged.

You can arrange payment at any of the 4 venues for your membership, which entitles you to 4 visits in any combination of venue - you can visit the same venue or different venues 4 times in a term or during one academic year.
