Learning at the Museum

Thousands of students from government, Catholic and independent schools visit us each year to learn about Jewish culture and contributions to this country, and our professional development workshops assist educators in the teaching of Judaism.

Students from Jewish day schools are engaged through activities such as our Roots program delivered with the Australian Jewish Genealogical Society—the outcomes of which are showcased in our Evolving Identities exhibit.

We create pioneering projects, including our Museums Together bridge building program with the Islamic Museum of Australia, and Augmented Reality Education Program with Sandpit.

Education at the Museum is not limited to schools; our short courses allow adult learners to discover more about themselves, their culture and world.

We do all this because we believe museums change lives. Maintaining identity, improving social cohesion, building connections and fostering a community that is open to and accepting of difference underscores everything we do.
