The Education Programme organises school tours of the museum's exhibitions, gardens, and permanent collection room to promote the culture of visiting museums among the young and to develop a more effective and vibrant understanding of the museum.
Tour and workshop: An eclectic tour based on selecting and focusing on specific topics from within the exhibition and expanding on them during an art workshop. This tour is suitable for children from Year 2 to Year 7.
Storyteller tour: This tour is based on storytelling; the materials and themes of the exhibition are transformed into a story that brings objects, documents, and other pieces to life as human experiences inherent to people’s lives. The imaginations of children and youth are allowed to soar across time and cultures. This tour is suitable for children and youth from Year 8 to secondary school.
Self-guided tour and discussion: A free-roaming tour of the exhibition during which youth can look at the materials, images, and artwork on their own, to explore the concepts and themes covered by the exhibition. Participants get a closer look at the production process of exhibitions by paying attention to artwork descriptions, display methods, and construction mechanisms within the exhibition space. This tour is suitable for youth from Year 10 to secondary school.
Garden and building tour: On this tour, students learn about Palestinian plants, their seasons, their place in diverse Palestinian geography, and the permanent artworks throughout. They also learn about the concept of the ‘green building’, which the museum is the first to be classified as in Palestine. Students learn why that is and how the museum was awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
