‘I want to go to the museum!’ program


Imagine a child’s reaction when they visit Melbourne Museum for the first time. The sight of the forest gallery and our huge pygmy blue whale skeleton gives them goose bumps.

The ‘I want to go to the Museum!’ program reaches out to children, schools and young families who, due to disadvantage or distance, have not visited one of our museums. Your support can break down barriers and actively engage children, parents and carers in Melbourne's cultural institutions.

This fantastic program supports a range of initiatives including the Science Morning Tea, Autism Friendly Museum Project, Active Minds and 1854 Scholarship programs.

We believe every child deserves the chance to go to the Museum.

Your donation can get them here. Please make a gift today.
