Learning at the Museum

The museum offers exciting and varied exhibits in the historic Bond Store, an original lighthouse and Port River cruises onboard the Archie Badenoch.

Schools are able to participate in a variety of programs at the museum and within the Port Adelaide area. Programs cover a wide range of curriculum areas and year levels and provide hands-on and discovery based learning experiences.

Our Education Manager develops and delivers programs to support exhibitions and events and is available to support teachers with designing successful learning experiences for their students.
