Learn­ing is how we make sense of our world and muse­ums play an impor­tant role in nur­tur­ing qual­i­ty learn­ing for children. 

We strive to cre­ate a wel­com­ing envi­ron­ment that encour­ages chil­dren’s nat­ur­al curios­i­ty and offer a range of vibrant pro­grams with oppor­tu­ni­ties to learn about our exhi­bi­tions, dis­plays and history. 


The Wom­en’s Muse­um of Aus­tralia is a rich resource for stim­u­lat­ing stu­dent learn­ing across a range of sub­ject areas. 

You can choose a self-guid­ed vis­it where you are free to explore our exhi­bi­tions which meet your school group’s spe­cif­ic learn­ing and cur­ricu­lum needs or arrange for one of our guides or the Cura­tor to present on your cho­sen topics.

We have devel­oped a com­pre­hen­sive edu­ca­tion­al resource pack­age linked to the pri­ma­ry Aus­tralian His­to­ry Curriculum.
