Plan a Class Visit
Auckland Museum is committed to making Museum collections accessible to schools and early childhood groups.
Our programmes suit an integrated approach to curriculum delivery. Tailoring the session to your particular curricular emphasis can be discussed with the museum educator before your visit.
We invite you to browse our Schools Programme and register for our education e-Newsletter for regular updates. We recommend you book your programmes three or more months in advance. You can also lead a self-guided visit to selected galleries and exhibitions.
Auckland Museum's school programmes are designed to reinforce New Zealand curricula.
Whether you wish to make a self-guided visit, or take advantage of working with our educators, it is a safety requirement that all school visits must be booked through the School Bookings Service. Bookings may be made through our Booking Application Form or give us a call on 09) 306-7040 if you wish to discuss your requirements in person.
Book your class into one of our School Programmes.
Teachers may choose to lead their own Museum visits. We have useful tips and information for planning self guided visits.
There are many things to consider when planning a school visit, here you will find some information and guidelines which we hope will help. From opening hours, bookings, accompanying adults, health & safety to services & facilities and worksheets - we aim to make your visit a smooth one.
Teacher resource packs available for download. Use these resources to tailor your own classroom programme prior to visiting Auckland Museum.
Museum staff have created small-scale web exhibitions where online visitors can see a small selection of objects from museum exhibitions. For each object the data stored in the Collection Records will be accessible.
Use the enquiry form to tell us your specific requirements. The friendly Education Services team will endeavour to respond by the next business day.
