Museum School Excursion

Bring history to life with more than 15 hands-on exhibitions, colourful stories, impressive steam locomotives and industrial machinery.

Step inside real trains, carriages and onto the platforms of our past and present. Enhance your student learnings with a School Program session led by a Museum Learning Officer or opt for a self-led visit.
