Tertiary and adult programs

Learning and discovery never stops
We offer a selection of tours and activities aimed at tertiary, adult and community special-interest groups, based around a close examination of the collection, including handling experiences.

Whether you are interested in a broad overview of our collections, a specific exhibition, or a particular subject of undergraduate and postgraduate study, we can develop an education program for you. Staff and students of other tertiary institutions are most welcome to speak to the education team about specialised collection-based learning experiences

We also offer regular guided tours. Please see our tours page for more information and seniors pricing.

We are currently taking bookings for in-person programs for March 2022 onwards, please see our Visitor safety information for current covid restrictions.
