Learning Programs for schools

The Rooms has hands-on learning sessions tied to grade-specific, curriculum-based learning outcomes. Programs are developed by our Education and Public Programming team, in consultation with other staff and education experts. We deliver the programs with the assistance of part-time staff and volunteers.

Special programs are also offered that relate to specific exhibitions or times of the year.

Sessions run from 90 to 120 minutes and are free (unless otherwise noted). Schools are responsible for transportation and adequate supervision.

Bookings for 2018-2019 school year can be made starting on September 4, 2018.
