A visit to the Museum is an excellent way to provide students with an understanding of what the past was like. The location of the Museum means that a visit can be combined with a broader historical excursion including the harbour, Andrew Lysaght Park and Market Square.
There is a charge of $3.00 per student. There is no charge for teachers and carers.
Teachers are encouraged to prepare material prior to the visit and information is available from the Museum Manager on (02) 4228 7770 (please leave a message) or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Museum has a 15 minute video which provides an introduction to the Museum and early Wollongong. The video can be made available to schools prior to a visit.
With sufficient notice, the Museum may be able to identify items in the collection that fit the particular curriculum needs of a class.
The Museum is a heritage building with some constraints that need to be taken into account when considering a school visit.
