Activities for primary schools

Botanical Garden
The Botanical Garden offers a great range of tours and workshops for primary school pupils. The Friends of the Botanical Garden have been doing this for years. The GUM itself does not yet offer an educational range for primary school and nursery pupils. If you would like to dive deeper into science with your class, we definitely recommend The World of Kina in Ghent.
