Mobile gallery tours and video conferences

Take advantage of our live video guided tours or curriculum-linked video conferences for students who can’t make it to Canberra but want to interact with the National Museum’s collections and staff.

Live tours of our exhibitions

Take your class on a live video tour of one of our exhibitions via simple-to-use technology.

These are interactive, guided experiences with a museum educator where students explore one of our many exhibitions in a curriculum-linked tour. Students can ask questions and engage in conversation about an area of history or geography including early exploration, the gold rushes, expansion of settlement/movement of peoples, Indigenous culture and heritage, the struggles for rights and freedoms and many other themes.
