Overlooking the Indian Ocean, the Museum of Geraldton celebrates the rich heritage of the land, sea and people of the Mid West region.

Our facilitated sessions use interactive storytelling and hands-on activities to immerse students in exciting stories from the Mid West. Dive into the story of the Batavia, the Mid West’s most infamous shipwreck, or try out the games and chores of Geraldton students from 100 years ago.

Groups are also welcome to visit the Museum to view the 3D film ‘From Great Depths: Witnessing the wrecks of Sydney II and Kormoran’ and explore the Shipwrecks Gallery and Mid West Gallery at their own pace.

There are booklets and trails available for students from Years 1-9. All sessions and resources are aligned with the Australian Curriculum: History and engage students in the region’s natural and social history.

Bookings for the 3D film, facilitated sessions and self-guided experiences are essential.

We are delighted to share the education programs on offer at the Museum of Geraldton during the 2024 school year.

From helping students investigate the fascinating adaptations that help animals to survive in the challenging environments of the Mid West, to exploring the wrecks of HMAS Sydney (II) and HSK Kormoran as they currently lie, 2,500m deep on the ocean floor, there’s something for every student to engage with.

We can’t wait to see you in 2024.
