National Motor Museum

As an international centre for the collection, research, preservation, education and display of Australian road transport history, the National Motor Museum is much more than a collection of vehicles. It is a social history of the way we were, the way we are now and the way of the future.

The education programs at the Museum combine guided inquiry trails with practical class based activities led by experienced museum staff. Education programs adhere to the Australian curriculum and the Teaching for Effective Learning (TfEL) framework. Discovery of technical innovation, amazing social histories and historical thinking skills are all part of the learning experience. The excellent facilities and spectacular surrounds of the National Motor Museum at Birdwood make for a truly enjoyable school outing
