Onsite school programs
The National Museum of Australia’s school programs are designed for students from preschool and Foundation to Year 12. Check out our curriculum-linked programs.
On-site school programs and visits are temporarily unavailable. We are still taking bookings for 2021 and beyond. We hope re-opening dates for 2020 school visits will be available soon.
