The Cube is an in-exhibition teaching feature and has been specially designed to offer immersive learning experiences for school students. It sits within our exhibitions, currently Wild Planet, and contains objects and specimens from the Museum's collections. Upon opening, students attending Cube sessions will be inspired by what they see and will have the opportunity to closely inquire, observe and touch objects and specimens, prior to exploring the surrounding exhibition.
The programs and activities facilitated from the Cube have been specially designed to enable group work, hands-on experiences, exploration and critical thinking. They are facilitated by a Museum educator and aim to deepen student learning within our exhibitions.
The Cube was funded by an Education Grant from the estate of the late Patricia McDonald and the Australian Museum Foundation.
Cube programs are currently designed for primary school students within our Wild Planet exhibition.
The cost of a Cube program is $10 per student with a minimum cost of $100 per session. General entry to the Australian Museum is free.
Cube programs are 60 minutes long and run throughout the week. Click on the specific programs below to check availability and book in.
