It is a place to explore our relationships to each other, to the places we live, and to the objects and events of our past. At the Museum, students can take part in creative, active and engaging programs that link real museum objects with the history curriculum.

Motivate your students with one of our facilitated programs, or immerse your class in our museum highlights through a teacher-guided tour.

A range of programs are available for students from preschool to senior secondary years. All programs incorporate the Museum's philosophy of student directed, inquiry-based learning. Students learn as they interact with each other, handle historical objects, explore the galleries and record their investigations using a variety of media.

In addition, the Museum has a range of online resources available to download from

Our web resources include interactive activities and curriculum-based units of work on a range of topics, events and people in Australian history.
