Primary school students visiting the Chau Chak Wing Museum have a unique oportunity to learn about how museums work and what they do through our object-based and museum-focused programs. Our broad and diverse exhibitions give students the opportunity to see contemprary art, natural history specimens and ancient artefacts in the same excursion.
Our teaching is discussion-based and inquiry-focused, as students explore the museum. Most schools book either a two-hour or three-hour visit. Both include a session in our hands-on room and a tour of the museum led by our education officers.
We are currently taking bookings for in-person programs for March 2022 onwards, please see our Visitor safety information for current covid restrictions.
Primary school students can explore the collections and participate in a range of engaging activities, including:
If you can't travel to the museum, we offer a series of digital learning experiences. Students can explore the collections – and our team can answer their questions – from the comfort of your classroom. Please contact us for more information. Charges apply.
