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.

2022 Program Update – COVID-19

In 2022 the Museum will be returning to our regular Education Programs. Under the current Queensland Government COVID guidelines (commencing December 17 2021) the Museum can operate at full capacity. 

The RD Milns Antiquities Museum complies with all Queensland Government COVID guidelines and restrictions, as well as UQ’s local COVID policies. From 3 May 2022 it is no longer a requirement to be fully vaccinated or use the Check-in Queensland app to attend UQ campuses. However, physical distancing and hygiene measures should be practiced, and masks are encouraged. See full UQ COVID policies and procedures. The Museum will continue to monitor changes to COVID restrictions and inform schools of any changes prior to their visit.

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.).

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."
