Education Programs

The RD Milns Antiquities Museum offers a range of programs for secondary school students studying the ancient world.  These programs seek to connect students to the past through our world class collection of Mediterranean antiquities located at The University of Queensland St Lucia campus.

All of our program options are aligned with State and National curricula, and cover the areas of Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome. See the Tours and Workshops page for a full list of our available programs.

2021 COVID-Safe Education Programs

Due to the restrictions surrounding COVID-19, all of the on-site tours and workshops will be delivered with physical distancing. The tours will cover the same content as our usual programs but will feature an audio-tour component. 

There is a limit of 39 students per visit for on-site bookings. Groups larger than 39 will have to visit over multiple days.

COVID-19 Visitor Requirements 

Please note the Museum has implemented a number of visitor requirements to ensure your visit with us is safe and enjoyable. Visitors will need to keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres between each other. Hand sanitiser stations and floor markings will be provided to assist visitors with physical distancing. As a restricted business, the Museum will have to collect contact information of all visitors as a requirement of entry. Please help us by following these new requirements.

Virtual Bookings

We are now offering virtual bookings. These programs will follow the same content and structure as our on-site tours and workshops, but will be delivered virtually to the classroom via video conferencing services (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc.). 

If you have any questions about the programs we offer, please contact the Museum Office on 3365 3010 or via antiquitiesbookings@uq.edu.au.

Feedback from Teachers

"Excellent presentation – thoroughly enjoyed by students and teachers."
 

"The workshops were presented very well. The way the students were able to interact with the ancient artefacts was excellent.”
 

"The day was interactive, engaging and extremely relevant to our unit of study. Students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the program and particularly the hands on nature of each activity."

"Our students don't have the opportunity to study ancient history so they really enjoyed the exposure to it! In some students fostered a love of history and in other sparked a genuine interest!"
 

“The students had a wonderful day – thank you. The sessions were purposeful and interesting."
 

"The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we look forward to visiting again next year."

“We have experienced the workshops for a few years now, and the students always come away with valuable information.”
 

"Excellent assistance in booking and organising our visit - could not speak highly enough of how prompt and accommodating staff were."
