Schools & Groups

The Samstag Museum of Art offers free exhibition talks and tours for schools and groups. The Museum also offers professional development for secondary and tertiary educators, to support visits and study around our exhibitions. 

Before visiting the Museum it is suggested that you contact staff to determine:

  • Suitability of exhibition content and subject matter for the year level you plan to bring.
  • Whether staff are available to give an introductory talk.
  • Opening hours, transport and cloakroom facilities.

We request that group visits to the Samstag Museum are to be booked in advance. Schools and other groups can book visits outside normal opening hours.

If possible, we recommend teachers and educators preview the exhibitions prior to bringing students to see the exhibition. We look forward to welcoming you and your class!
