Primary and Secondary School Visits
The Teece Museum and Logie Collection can be used to explore a wide variety of disciplines such as classics, history, art history, social studies, geography, and fine arts. We offer guided sessions for primary and secondary schools from Year 1 to Year 13. Teachers can choose from a series of set lesson plans, or the content can be tailored to meet specific learning outcomes.
Planning your visit
The Museum is available for school groups by appointment Monday to Friday 9am-4.30pm. Through the generous sponsorship of the UC Foundation, this service for schools is free.
Contact our team to make a booking.
These resources are designed to give you some ideas and information about class visits to the Museum, alongside practical notes about how to find us or contact us. The resources are just possible starting points. We are happy to discuss with teachers alternative lesson goals and activities.
