Learning resources

We've digitised our collections to extend classroom learning
Our online collection search brings together art, science and history. We invite you to use this resource for your pre- and post-visit classes.

Ask us

We welcome questions about the collections from students and teachers.

Search tips

Our online collections cover a wide range of objects and art works. To narrow your search to artefacts currently on display in the museum, select "Nicholson Museum" from the collection dropdown menu and tick "on display".

Thank you for your interest in our work experience program. Unfortunately, we are not undertaking student placements in 2018–19.

We look forward to hosting a new work experience program when we open the Chau Chak Wing Museum in 2020.
