Early learners

Introducing young minds to art, science, history and culture
We welcome early learners from preschool, daycare and childcare centres to programs full of storytelling, role-play and interactive art and craft activities. Visiting the museum is a first step to lifelong learning.


These tours are packed with fun things to do and are designed to inspire children's interest in museums.

Activities are based around current exhibitions, and include:

  • storytelling
  • mummy wrapping and toga-wearing
  • our 'beetles and bugs' program
  • creative play
  • learning about indigenous cultures.
