Discovery cases

Borrow artefacts or specimens in a 'discovery case' from the Museum.

Invite the Museum into your classroom and get up close and personal with a case of artefacts and specimens. The Discovery Cases provide students with a hands-on experience as they are able to remove and touch many of the items in the cases.

Discovery case topics include:

  • Aboriginal technologies

  • Ancient Egypt

  • Beach combing

  • Fossils

  • Insects

  • Meteorites

  • Spiders

  • Pacific cultures.

Discovery Cases are available for loan at a cost of $60 for 2 weeks (including GST).

Each case is supported by resource materials that address the Australian Curriculum.

Booking your case

Please email to request a booking for a case. These cases may be collected from the Museum’s front desk or you may organise your own courier at your school’s expense to ship anywhere in South Australia. Collection and delivery is usually on the weekends to make life easier for the regional teachers, however other times can be negotiated.
