‘I want to go to the museum!’ program


Thanks to the support of members of our community, the 'I want to go to the Museum!' program has gone from strength to strength. This fantastic program supports a range of initiatives including the Science Morning Tea, Schools Access and 1854 Scholarship programs.

This year, as well as continuing to support these vital projects into the future, 'I want to go to the Museum!' is seeking to fund the further development of our award winning Autism Friendly Museum Project.

The Museum will partner with specialist schools to create a volunteer work experience program for young people with autism and related conditions that will:

  • provide real world learning experiences across our many departments
  • support their transition from school into adult life
  • increase opportunities for them to participate and thrive within our community

Our amazing supporters have raised over $25,000 for the Autism Friendly Museum Project, and we need just $10,000 more to get this program underway – your gift can make a real difference.

Every child deserves a chance to go to the Museum.

Please make a gift today.
