Outreach Program


Share this

Museum Victoria's Outreach Program is a travelling ‘museum in a van’ and kit loan service.

The Outreach Program provides access to the Museum's collection for people who may find it difficult to visit our museums for reasons that include age and geographical distance.

The Outreach Program provides several different programs to provide access to the Museum’s collection and expertise:

  • Free virtual learning excursions allow students to experience Museums Victoria from the classroom. 
  • Kindergarten presentations bring museum learning activities to 4 year old kindergarten groups all over metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
  • Learning kits (K-adult) are cases filled with objects and a variety of learning materials that teachers can hire to engage their students with natural science and social history subjects.
  • Reminiscing kits are specifically designed for activity coordinators to use in reminiscing sessions. They are suitable for aged care groups only.
  • Adult presentations are a mobile service which delivers museum object-based sessions for adult groups who may find it difficult to visit one of our venues, such as aged care facilities.
  • The Federation Handbells are a unique musical resource available to everyone.

Virtual Learning

Bring Museums Victoria into your classroom with virtual learning sessions. These engaging and interactive experiences provide access to expert educators and spaces across Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks and Immigration Museum.

Designed to target Primary and Secondary school students as well as offering teacher professional learning these programs offer insight and behind the scenes narratives that aren't as easily stumbled-upon onsite.

The videoconferencing technology we use is engaging yet simple to use and we are here to help you every step of the way.

It is the perfect opportunity to discover all Museums Victoria has to offer without leaving the classroom and can also complements an onsite visit as a form of pre and post learning.
