Students and schools

What support can teachers get at the Museum?

Our education team has developed student programs that are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and TfEL for each gallery.

Our Education Program Manager is based at the Museum and along with Museum volunteer educators can take your class for a lesson in a gallery when they are available. These lessons are inquiry based and encourage student participation. The Education Program Manager can also provide Professional Development tours and workshops for groups of teachers.


Self-guided visits

Downloadable programs are available for teachers to support students with self-guided tours around the Museum.

There are many ways to work with students in the galleries. See some of our ideas for working with students in a gallery.
