A student tries on a life jacketMuseums Wellington provides unforgettable learning experiences for students of all ages at Museum of Wellington City & Sea, Cable Car Museum and Colonial Cottage Museum. Our museum programmes enable students to discover the stories of Wellington/Te Whanganui-ā-Tara in an authentic, fun and hands-on context.

Programmes support the New Zealand Curriculum and provide opportunities for students to develop the key competencies in a social learning context. Our Social Sciences focus can be linked to English, The Arts, Tourism, Science, or Technology depending on your requirements.

Our programmes are developed and led by experienced teachers, who are available to host Syndicate/Department Meetings at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea, or to visit your institution to discuss your programme requirements. Programmes are supported by the Ministry of Education's Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom initiative.
