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.

Our expert educators curators and historians are on hand to facilitate these curriculum-linked programs upon request.
Presenters encourage students to develop their own inquiries as they investigate cultures and histories and develop historical skills.
We use objects from the Museum’s handling collection and interactive media onscreen for some programs and groups.
