Planning your school visit

The museum is currently ungoing redevelopment of its permanent galleries. Capacity and learning opportunities are therefore limited. Please contact the museum to discuss you visit requirements by emailing or by phone on 6234 1427 Monday to Friday (0900 - 1500).  Or you can complete the on-line booking form below or fax/ post a completed PDF form.

The museum is wheelchair accessible and coach parking is available outside the museum on Argyle Street.  

To best support your students, we ask that for primary aged groups teachers have a minimum ratio of 1 adult to 5 children. Expect a visit to take about forty-five minutes.
