Schools and Groups

The Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre welcomes school and visitor groups of all ages.

Our education program has been designed to offer immersive experiences for students of all ages and abilities.

Guided by the current WA Humanities & Social Sciences Curriculum, we can offer lessons in our beautiful classroom, tours, and a true ‘walk back through time’ for students and educators alike.

Our programs are flexible and can be tailored to your education focus, including home schooled students.

School Excursions ​

School programs are available Wednesday, Thursday & Friday between 10:00am and 3:00pm during school terms.

Each program runs for approximately 90 minutes.

All school programs are currently by gold coin donation per student.

Adult helpers are encouraged to become involved in the student experience.

We try to avoid too many rules, but there are a few ‘Museum Manners’ we expect all visitors to follow. 

Group Visits

Group tours of the Museum can be arranged by appointment with the Museum staff. Please let us know if there is a particular aspect of the Museum or Bunbury history which interests you.


Bookings are essential, preferably at least two weeks in advance contact us for more information and to check availability.

A copy of the City of Bunbury Public Liability Certificate and the Museum Evacuation Diagram can be forwarded to you upon booking.
