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

The Subiaco Museum offers a fun and interactive history program for Year Two Students which has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the HAAS (History) Curriculum.

Year Two students will learn about life in the past through hands-on olden day activities and games.

Students get an opportunity to compare their daily lives with a child from Subiaco's past. The life of a young boy who lived in Subiaco 100 years ago will be shared with the students through historical photographs and artefacts. They will step back in time and discover what life was like in the past through handling and using museum objects. Students will learn about how people lived, worked, travelled, shopped, communicated and spent their leisure time.

Through these hands-on activities students will discover how people's lives have changed as a result of technological developments.

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 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.
