In School Visits 

Canterbury Museum is on the road, bringing our hands-on, resource rich education programmes to your school. All the programmes delivered by our educators weave together learning areas, key competencies and object-based learning to provide authentic experiences for tamariki.

For our in-school programmes to be effective all we need is:

  • A minimum of one day at your school to maximise the learning opportunities for your students. We will arrive at your site early in the day and stay until the school day ends.
  • A space large enough for our educators to deliver our programme to your students

Our learning experiences are targeted and tailored to meet students’ learning outcomes and aim to enrich and enhance knowledge, skills, values and attitudes while complementing classroom learning at the appropriate level. 

Our in-school visits are easy to use. There is no need to organise buses or parent helpers to organise. We bring our programmes to your school and take your students through a rich, hands-on 50-minute learning experience. We will work with you to tailor the programme to your learning needs.

Site Visits

Our Riccarton House, Riccarton Bush and Quake City programmes are still available for school groups.

How much does it cost?

Our in-school programmes cost $2.50/student. If the programme involves visiting Quake City, Riccarton House or Riccarton Bush there is a $2.00 cost for each visitor.

We will invoice your school after delivering our programmes to you.
