School groups are welcome to visit the Museum at any time for either a free self-guided tour, guided tour and/or private studio session. We appreciate letting the Museum know if you are coming - whether self-guided or not – as this ensures we don't have multiple groups at once and makes for a more relaxed and accessible visit for everyone.
The Museum also offers special orientation sessions for educators to give them the tools to lead a self-guided tour for students. These sessions apply to specific exhibitions throughout the year.
Our Education Officer, Sophie Holvast is available to answer any questions about visiting the Museum or our exhibitions prior to booking on (02) 6043 5807.
What to bring
Students will be able to leave their bags in a secure room. It is advisable that students have a sketchbook to respond to the artwork.
Food and drink (other than water) are not allowed to be consumed in the Museum, but there are lovely shady areas in QE11 Square to enjoy morning, afternoon tea or lunch.
