Visit the Abbey Museum for our Indigenous, first contact, medieval, and ancient civiliations education programs, all designed to meet the criteria of the new national curriculum.
We have so many schools come to experience our fantastic education programs, and our Archaeological Digs are all time favourites.
We bet you didn’t realise that students as young as 5, in Prep can also experience the thrill of digging up Ancient Egypt?
Recently some students from St.Michael’s College visited the Museum to participate in a specially designed hands on experience, they excavated, they learned about mummification (very much enjoying wrapping up a classmate), they dressed up in authentic Egyptian dress and had their faces painted.
Our education programs are specially designed to be fun whilst at the same time teaching historical knowledge and understanding, and historical skills.
We hope you enjoy watching the delight on the faces of the little ones as they carefully excavate replica objects from the dig, the team work is priceless and the commitment to the process whilst knowing there was more to excavate in their grid puts a smile on all of our faces here at the Abbey Museum.
