Make a Booking

How to make a booking - for self guided & guided groups

  1. Select the  education program that best suits your group’s learning focus, age and abilities. You may instead choose to go for a self guided experience in our Museum.

  2. Consider two or three options for dates and times you would like to visit. Our opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 10am – 5pm. We are closed on Mondays during school term but can offer some of our outreach education programs on Mondays also.

  3. Contact our Audience Engagement Officer - Education on 02 4974 1422 with your program selection, dates, and class details to make a booking. Alternatively email us at and leave all details including a contact telephone number and the best time/s to call.

  4. Confirmation details, risk assessments, and any other relevant program material will be emailed prior to your visit. Please read through and double check all information is accurate. Some of the information needs to be shared with the accompanying adults in your group.

Teachers of special needs classes please contact our staff to discuss how we can tailor a program to suit your group.

Making A Payment

Your school or organisation will be sent an invoice from Newcastle City Council after attending your booked program. The invoice details payment options.
