Redcliffe Museum school tours

Redcliffe Museum offers a range of free activities for schools of all sizes and year levels. Short visits of only 30 minutes can be accommodated through to half day excursions.

Call ahead to book and let us know which aspect of Redcliffe history you would like to explore and we will tailor activities accordingly. We currently offer:

  • Pioneering activities that highlight what life was like for our settlers
  • ‘Then and Now’ which considers scenes from the treasured photographs of George Mewes and the modern day landscape
  • Seven films to watch about the early days of the Redcliffe peninsula
  • Changing activities in the Imaginarium, which is a fun, intergeneration space to play
  • Guided tours, guest speakers and workshops

School groups are encouraged to combine their visit to the museum with the Redcliffe Convict Trail. This self-guided walk is 1.7km long and takes you to 8 points of interest including First Settlement Wall and prisoner’s barracks. The trail leads you to Redcliffe Museum where you can pop in before or after to learn more about the history of the peninsula. 

Alternatively, take a short stroll along the creek to combine your visit with Redcliffe Art Gallery. 

We also have a portico off to the side of the entrance where groups are welcome to stop for a picnic lunch.
