Teacher-guided groups can select one of two bags, each filled with activities, games and objects to handle, to help the Museum come alive for students. Groups set their own pace on  a fun-filled, collaborative learning journey, with content aligned to the Australian Curriculum.

The Dreaming Bag connects groups to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories, people and continuing cultures.

The Wild Colonial Bag helps groups explore migrant experiences, the impacts of colonialism on First Australians and the age of paddle-steamers.

Bookings are essential for Unpack the Museum.
