Access & inclusion for Learning

Our vision is to enable all students, including those with access requirements, to fully experience our places and connect with all our stories.

Sydney Living Museums has set about developing a new onsite program for primary and secondary school students, who have a range of different access needs. 

Based out of our brand-new learning space at the World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks, and developed in consultation with experts, teachers and students, Making Connections will support learning in a safe and inclusive environment, allowing students to make personal and memorable connections to the past.

Share your expertise with us.

We want more students than ever before to access our places, collections, activities and stories and we need your help!
Do you, or someone you know, have current or recent experience teaching students with access requirements, within a support class or a school for specific purpose? If so, we want to know what you are looking for in an excursion, and how we can best support you and your students' learning in our museum.

To help guide us, please complete our short survey (via SurveyMonkey).

We have developed a social story for each of our excursion locations to support teachers visiting our museums with students. You can view them as a slideshow, or they can be printed as a booklet.
