Primary

Our primary school education programmes are designed especially for Year 1 – 8 students and offer a fun, hands-on learning experience for young students in a unique, inspiring environment.

Primary School Programmes

With support from the Ministry of Education through its LEOTC (Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom) programme, the museum provides the perfect place to enrich learning across the curriculum. We offer programmes led by an MTG educator, or free self-guided visits facilitated by our education team, and we are happy to tailor a programme to suit your teaching focus.

Browse our current and upcoming programmes, download a brochure or contact our Educators for more information and bookings.
