Recognising the mutually beneficial value for students and the Australian Museum, we will provide inspiring and exciting experiences for students.

Australian Museum departments focussed on scientific exploration and discovery will offer students real opportunities to engage with their work. Other participants will have valuable opportunities to experience ‘behind-the-scenes’ departments whose work relates to the running of the Museum. Whichever Department hosts your time at the Australian Museum, the experience will provide practical learning opportunities to consolidate classroom teaching. In turn, this will support your personal development and professional skills as you prepare to enter the workforce and develop your career potential.


  • Open - Monday 7 March
