Cultural diversity programmes
Working in line with the curriculum, the Museum's Learning Centre has developed a series of community relations programmes, designed to help students explore their own and each others’ identity, heritage and culture. As the core values of equity, diversity and inter-dependence have been used as the basis for these programmes, they offer opportunities for students to learn more about their own culture and traditions, and those of others.

The interactive classroom sessions, which last between 1-2 hours, are led by the Museum's experienced and professionally trained community relations staff. They can incorporate participation in the traditional craft workshops or a visit to the open air Museum. Living history, people's stories, exhibit buildings and artefacts are used to enable students of all ages to come into contact with different aspects of heritage through these innovative learning programmes.
