Learning Comes Alive at Museums Victoria

No matter what your students are studying, there’s an educational program to give them a unique learning experience at Museums Victoria.

SCIENCE AND STEM

Both the Melbourne Museum and Scienceworks have a variety of programs, the majority being scientific in nature. Students can learn about bugs, dinosaurs, electricity, the human body and evolution and try their hand at designing and engineering robots, Martian movers, rollercoasters and city infrastructure. Both locations provide an immersive, hands on experience designed to educate and entertain. 

ASTRONOMY

Located at Scienceworks, the Melbourne Planetarium opens up the skies to your students. Star gazing, black holes, the solar system, climate change, Indigenous astronomy and physics are some of the many topics that are covered at the Planetarium. It features a 16m domed ceiling and dome video projection system resulting in visual display of colour and light to keep everyone entranced and engaged. 

INDIGENOUS CULTURE AND HISTORY

Learn about Indigenous history and culture at the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre located at Melbourne Museum. Your students will have the opportunity to learn about art, culture, how daily life has changed over time, their relationship with the land and how the concept of place shapes their identity. 

SOCIOLOGY AND CULTURAL HISTORY

Immigration and multiculturalism are the two things that have made Melbourne and Australia the place they are today. The Immigration Museum focuses on opening students’ eyes to the different cultures that make up Australia, teaches why people leave their homes and what it means to be a global citizen. There are also programs for VCE Sociology and English.
