To connect your classroom to the Australian Museum you will need:

  • A reliable internet connection
  • A projector or screen connected to your device
  • A camera and microphone connected to your device

It is recommended that your classroom be set up so each learner can see and hear the presenter during the video conference.

The simplest way to connect is through a direct connection using Zoom via Aarnet. The connection does not require any software to be downloaded, but does require a computer (PC or Mac) with an internet connection, a webcam, and a microphone.

The Zoom connection to the Australian Museum is secure and private. After confirming your school’s booking you will receive an instructional email, that will contain the link to the Zoom room and the passcode required to enter the room. Click on the link to open the connection in your chosen web browser. Zoom will automatically activate your device’s camera and microphone.

If your school is unable to connect using the above methods, contact us to discuss other options for connecting with the Museum by emailing
