Education

Welcome to education at the Gold Museum, your window to over 150 000 items of cultural and historical significance that tell a wide variety of stories from ancient history to today, with a special emphasis on the gold fields and colonial history in our region.

Our programs are curriculum linked across year levels and can provide unique opportunities to access material not on public display, the opportunity to learn about care and management of cultural material, and the history and ethics of collection.

A new suite of programs are currently in development and we are happy to work with you to tailor an education experience for your students.

Special Program

Aboriginal History at the Gold Museum

Meet a museum professional and go behind the scenes to tour the Gold Museum’s Pern Collection, a large collection of indigenous artefacts from across Australia and the Pacific. Students will discuss the Pern Collection and explore the importance of collection, conservation and museum ethics.

This program has been specially developed for the year 7 and 8 Victorian history curriculum, but can be modified to suit other year levels.

Teacher’s can register for free entry at any time. For more information: http://education.sovereignhill.com.au/teachers/educator-pass/
