Primary Education Programs
There are a number of options available for primary groups that wish to visit Sydney University Museums.
We can accommodate small groups of just a few students or large groups up to 160 students. Most visiting groups choose either the three-hour or two-hour options, but we can negotiate a unique visit if your group has specific requirements.
A standard full-day visit to one or more museums usually consists of either 1.5 hours in the galleries, a break for lunch (not provided), and then 1.5 hours in hands-on sessions, or three one-hour sessions in different galleries across the collection. Times are flexible, but many groups book for 10am–2pm.
Cost: $14.50 per student (inc. GST).
A standard half-day visit to one or more museums usually consists of one hour in the galleries and one hour of hands-on sessions or other activities. Times are flexible.
Cost: $12.50 per student (inc. GST).
Combine your visit to the Nicolson Museum with an Egyptian film screening at the LG IMAX Theatre Sydney!
Experience the fascinating world of ancient Egypt's mummies and monuments - now in spectular IMAX 3D. Previously released as 'Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs' this new 3D version of the film takes on a completely new, totally immersive quality unique to IMAX.
In Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies, audiences will explore the fascinating world of Egypt through its ancient mummies and monuments. They will be taken back in time to a world full of wonder, mystique and intrigue, exploring Egypt through the dramatic canvass of the large-format screen. Modern Egyptologists have coined the term "embalmed evidence" to convey how mummies can provide clues to the distant past. By studying mummies, and their archeological resting places, we obtain a unique window into ancient Egyptian culture, religion, medicine, and so many other aspects of the daily life of this great ancient civilization. The Egyptians’ mummy-making culture was not the first, nor the last, or even the longest. But it was the greatest. Audiences will discover how the ancient Egyptians developed a more complex belief system, magic, and art of embalming their dead than any other people in history.
