Students step into history during an excursion to our historic houses and museums to discover how people lived in the past and the important events and stories that unfolded in these special places. Our excursions are immersive, curriculum-linked and unforgettable.
Our secondary school excursions cover a diverse range of topics and issues, from colonisation and the history of contact with Aboriginal people to archaeology, food technology and crime and punishment.
Bring the richness of our onsite museum programs right into your classroom with a curriculum-linked virtual excursion.
Sydney Living Museums offers a range of free online learning resources. Designed by teachers for primary and secondary school students to use in class or at home.
