Education and outreach

Children at heritage houses and the museum

We offer inquiry-based education programs at the Wanneroo Museum and historic houses venues for lower to middle primary aged children. All programs are aligned with the Western Australian Curriculum. 

Inclusivity at Wanneroo Museum and heritage houses

We are striving to make our museums as inclusive as possible to ensure all visitors have an enriching experience at our sites. We offer the following accommodations:

  • Visiting story – a visual story outlining what happens during the excursion
  • Sensory backpacks
  • Headphones
  • Large grip pencils
  • Fidgets
  • Vocabulary lists with images 
  • Sensory maps of each venue are in development

Visiting stories and vocabulary lists can be sent ahead of the excursion. 

Please let us know if there is anything else we can provide to build a safe, welcoming environment for your students and we will do our best.

Low sensory environments at the Wanneroo Museum

Wanneroo Museum tends to be quieter on Mondays, when the nearby café is closed and we do not have other programs taking place concurrently. If you have a group who would prefer a self-led activity in a more relaxed environment, please call us on 9405 5920 or email museum@wanneroo.wa.gov.au to arrange a visit.

Outreach resources

Enhance your teaching of history by using real-life objects and resources found in our museums in a box. These kits have different themes and are a highly tactile way of investigating continuity and change through objects.
