Learning – Activities and Education
The Museum offers a wide range of learning opportunities through activity and education programming. We aim to create specific programs to grow and nurture children’s knowledge of the district, regional and national social history. The education facilitator takes classes on a journey through a wide range of learning experiences that align with the New Zealand educational curriculum while offering unique and topical issue focused programming such as environmental sustainability, bicultural studies utilising historical storytelling, and place based observational practice.
