Tours and Workshops

The RD Milns Antiquities Museum offers a wide variety of tours and workshops, covering a range of topics from across the ancient world. These programs allow students to engage with curriculum content and apply historical skills in an engaging environment. 

Tours begin by allowing students to explore the Museum gallery, a space which holds the foremost collection of Mediterranean antiquities on public display in Queensland. Students will then be taken on a guided tour of the gallery, with content delivered by one of our knowledgeable guides. Groups will examine and discuss a selection of hand-picked artefacts, relevant to your chosen theme. Students are encouraged to ask questions and interrogate archaeological evidence.

Workshops are held in our dedicated Education Room and involve hands-on activities. Several of our workshops give students the opportunity to handle real ancient artefacts and to apply historical skills in a practical setting. Other activities include mummy wrapping, deciphering hieroglyphics, and more. All workshops are facilitated by a university-qualified guide who assists students in developing analytical skills and directs group discussions.

For an in-depth overview of how our programs relate to the curriculum, see our Curriculum Guide.
