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; our professional development workshops assist their 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, and we create pioneering projects — including Museums Together with the Islamic Museum of Australia and our 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 this because we believe museums change lives. Maintaining identity, improving social cohesion and fostering a community that is open to and accepting of difference underscores everything we do.

In Eating History, the University of New South Wales' Dr Ruth Balint will recount the history of Jewish migration to Australia through the lens of women and homemaking. Starting with the great departure of refugees from Europe during the Nazi period and its aftermath, this four-week course will explore the gendered experience of resettlement and the ways women sought to challenge, manipulate and preserve their history and identities through recipes and food.
