Learn about local history at Subiaco Museum through a free hands-on, interactive history program for Year One Students.

The Subiaco Museum offers a free hands - on interactive history program for Year One students. The program is led by museum staff and meets the requirements of the HAAS (History) Curriculum.

The Year One students can role play daily lives of Subiaco families from the early 1900s by handling collection items and dressing up in 1900s costumes.

They can dig deep into the museum trunk and explore historical photographs and objects that belonged to families from the past. They will discover for themselves how families have changed or stayed the same.

Through the 'Then' and 'Now' game the students can consider the differences and similarities of past and present-day family life.

We are limited to 25 people in the museum at any one time but the class can be divided into groups if your class exceeds this number, with one group playing old fashioned games outside while the rest of the class explores the galleries and artefacts inside the museum.

After the visit to the museum school groups are welcome to take the museum's basket of old fashioned games to use in the historical Rankin Gardens which is located close-by. It is a delightful area for children to play or picnic.

Please book the day and session you prefer from the available times. You will then need to answer how many students are in your class (maximum 25). Ratio of 1 teacher/adult per 6 children.

Note: We can accommodate class groups exceeding this number by running one activity on the grassed area at the front of the museum. In inclement weather the additional activity may need to be moved to the Subiaco Community Centre or Council Chambers. In line with social distancing requirements and City operations, Subiaco Museum staff might need to move the museum visit outside in front of the museum. Teachers will be notified of any changes.

Split Class groups: Please contact the museum if you would like to bring a split class (e.g. combined Year One and Two students). Museum staff should be able to tailor your activities to meet the curriculum requirements for your individual class group.
