Learning at the museum

When visiting the museum, adults accompanying children are encouraged to scaffold and model learning behaviours such as conversations, observations, comparisons and inquiring to learn together.

This will foster a love of learning while supporting connections to environments and communities from local to global. Museums are a great way to make learning fun and learn at your own pace.

Staff are located throughout our museums to assist, offer directions, or interpret information. Children’s activities and interactions feature throughout our galleries and grounds.
