Education Programs


Through the education program, the Claremont Museum provides an insight into life in the past and, in the process, develops a student’s imagination and curiosity.

Our program is designed and delivered in the context of the Western Australian Curriculum with the aims of developing;

  • an interest in and enjoyment of history
  • a knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the past
  • an understanding and use of historical concepts such as evidence, continuity and change, cause and effect
  • a capacity to undertake historical inquiry, to explain and communicate.


The program is operated both indoors and outdoors at Claremont Museum in Mrs Herbert’s Park.

It is designed for maximum interaction through small group learning. Students participate in Museum activities, led by our trained teachers and volunteers.

The Programs are particularly suited to the Humanities and Social Sciences learning area of the Western Australian Curriculum for Years 1 to 6.


The education program costs $12.00 per child, teachers and parents are free of charge.

We offer the program on Monday and Tuesday in Terms 2 and 3.

A maximum of one class per booking, for larger groups please book multiple days.

To check availability and to book please contact the Claremont Museum on 9285 4300.

“The children absolutely loved their entire visit and the museum staff and volunteers have helped create some beautiful memories and experiences to inspire our History unit of work.”

If you would like a self guided visit on another day please contact the Museum on or 9285 4300.
