Museum Teachers

Museum Teachers is open to all Victorian teachers and educators to create the best learning outcomes through our museums.

Museum Victoria's Museum Teachers program provides free access to our three unique Museums – Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks and Immigration Museum. It also supports teachers and educators by offering professional learning opportunities, resources to use in the classroom or early childhood service, and exclusive invitations to exhibition previews and special events.
