School history excursions to Pine Rivers Heritage Museum

2020 season now open for bookings

20 April - 18 September 2020

Take your students back in time with innovative and immersive history excursions at Pine Rivers Heritage Museum!

Year one students are invited to make (and eat) real butter, play historic games, dance to 1950s music and experience a 1950s classroom lesson.

These programs are linked directly to the Australian Year One Curriculum and feature the continuity and changes associated with 1950s family structures and daily life. 

Students from year two and above can experience early twentieth century life as they write on slates, learn about the local settlers, do the washing, mince carrots, and explore the wonders of trees.

So, join us as we dress up and have lots of fun in the past!
