There are many ways for schools to create engaging learning experiences in the museum. Schools can visit and undertake a specific program or explore our exhibits over one, two or more days including visiting our vast array of shops, industries and cottages, whilst our local schools may choose to attend for only a few focused hours. We have the ability to incorporate daily activities and demonstrations such as the Gold Pour, Candle Makers and Mine Tours, gold panning, museum exploration and you can enjoy our multi-sensory evening experience AURA. Our learning programs are mapped to the Victorian Curriculum and schools can access Inquiry, pre and post and Discover It Yourself Program Materials when booking a visit. We will work with you to design a program that best meets your educational needs.
