Education Programs

What do we offer?

The RD Milns Antiquities Museum provides a range of education programs for secondary school students studying the ancient world. These programs provide opportunities for students to learn and apply historical skills outlined in the Australian Curriculum (ACARA). We cover syllabus content related to ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt.

Our education programs consist of themed tours and workshops, each focusing on a unique area of the ancient world. Tours are held in our gallery space, where students are guided through a curated selection of artefacts. Workshops allow students to learn and apply historical skills in a hands-on environment. We also offer virtual tours for schools across Australia. Education programs are delivered by skilled researchers in the fields of Ancient History, Archaeology, and Museum Studies. 

The Antiquities Museum is located at The University of Queensland’s St Lucia Campus. Groups visiting the Museum may also take advantage of the many facilities and opportunities available on campus. 


What program is right for you?

Our programs are suitable for students ranging from Year 7 to Year 12. We draw from both 7-10 History syllabus (ACARA Version 9.0) and the Senior Ancient History syllabus (ACARA Version 8.4). 

For an in-depth guide to how our programs relate to the high school curriculum, please refer to our Curriculum Guide. This document outlines what syllabus modules are covered by each of our programs, allowing you to find the program that is best for your students.

"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."
