What makes an object special? Learners are invited to bring a special object of their own to the museum for this hands-on workshop. Find out how a museum collects, keeps and looks after objects by creating a class collection of your very own. Transforming into Museum Curators, learners will think about the different reasons why an object can be considered special, assess the significance of their own special object and write their own museum registration tag.
Please note: this workshop requires participants to bring in their own special object for use during the session.
This workshop was co-designed with 5W from Baulkham Hills North Public School and their teachers Ms Brammer and Ms Wyber.
This program is available Monday to Friday at Powerhouse Museum and Wednesday to Friday at Museums Discovery Centre.
