Students learn as they interact with each other, handle historical objects, engage with personal stories, explore the galleries and record their investigations using a variety of media.

The Museum’s website also features object-rich units of work, engaging multimedia and contextualised primary resources.

Blast to the past with Kspace!
Kspace is the Museum’s new interactive adventure game for kids. In this brand new experience, children build their own time-travelling robot then blast off to explore a mystery location in Australia’s past, such as the Victorian goldfields of 1854 or Sydney in the 1930s when the Harbour Bridge was being built.

Kspace is designed for primary school students. Visit nma.gov.au/kspace for more information and for booking details.
