In Term 1, 2021 the Museum Outreach Program will be offering three online virtual programs and one 'museum in a van' program. Kindergartens can chose to have the museum visit through an online visit, as a museum in a van incursion, or both!

Please note: the Dinosaurs and Fossils program is available as an online virtual learning program or as a museum in a van incursion. Please choose carefully which format you prefer to have the Dinosaurs and Fossils program delivered in. If you want dinos in a van to come to your kinder and you would also like a virtual learning experience, please select another program such as Deep sea discovery (available from 1 March) or What is a bug?.
