Our education programs include hands-on experiences which immerse students in the life of the early goldfields. Students will enjoy participating in old-fashioned games, helping with household chores and exploring innovative use of resources. Classes wishing to step further back in time can explore the discovery and recovery of extinct creatures big and small.
