While we are not currently offering on-site school programs, school groups are welcome to visit the museum for a self-guided experience. There is a lot to discover! Worksheets to support and enhance your self-directed exploration can be emailed to teachers on request. 

Self-guided museum visits must be booked at least 10 days in advance to receive the discounted rate.

Bring the museum to your classroom with our new inquiry-based education kits. Each kit contains activities, worksheets, crafts and artifacts that support core competencies and connect with the big ideas in the BC curriculum.
