Bring your students to one of our curriculum-based school programs for years 5 to 12.

The programs use our exhibitions, collections and reading rooms as a springboard to find out more about Australian history and culture. Students critically interpret texts and learn search methods to understand historical and contemporary events and issues.

We also run a teacher professional development program.
