School programs

The 2015 schedule of learning programs offers a range of returning favourites, as well as a new Dinosaur-themed program (commencing Jan 2015).

Programs are delivered in a range of spaces adjacent to public galleries, including the INVENTory on level 4. This provides a value-added, unique museum experience to enhance and extend the outcomes of your visit.
Learning programs offer creative exploration or investigation of museum objects and/or stories through active participation.

All programs for 2015 remain at 2013 prices of $5.50 per student (supervising adults free).
