A view of the exhibition Connections, now on at the Nicholson Museum


Discover a vast world through our remarkable collections
Our public education programs are currently closed until the Chau Chak Wing Museum opens in late 2020. Get in touch to discuss your future education needs.

We provide a range of unique experiences through education programs for early learners, primary and secondary school students, and groups including out-of-school care, community groups and seniors clubs.

Our programs aim to make exploring the museum fun and educational for visitors of all ages and experiences. We use visual teaching strategies and unique object-based learning techniques to bring the collections to life. All our activities are participatory, enabling a memorable and enjoyable exploration of the museum's collections.

Our team of educational officers are drawn from a wide variety of research backgrounds and are eager to share their knowledge; they are trained to facilitate discussion and encourage your participants' journey into history, art, science and culture.

Talk to us about your group’s educational needs, and we can match you with a program.
