Waikato Museum SJP 25 EDITED

Waikato Museum is an ideal place for learning and development. Our programmes extend the learning environment beyond the classroom for both students and teachers. We have also developed relevant and useful teachers' notes and can tailor unique classes to meet the needs of our visiting education groups.


Free sessions on Zoom

Tour, Explore, and Draw

30 minute Zoom sessions available free of charge for your classroom!

All sessions combine a museum tour, storytelling session with our skilled educators, plus creative activities for your class.

Possible sessions to choose from are 'Te Winika, a Waikato Taonga',  'Contemporary Art Blast', 'Shaping Hamilton: How did we get to here?' or 'Looking at Illustration with Ruby Jones'. We will work with teachers to customise content and make the session relevant to your student's learning.
