Museum Express aims to deliver affordable high quality science education to primary schools in the Hunter and Central Coast regions.

All its products are curriculum linked and connected to the Museum's exhibition program to ensure they are relevant, engaging and outcome focussed for schools.

Museum Express is an outreach program presented by a qualified teacher.


A marshmallow bazooka, slime-haired skull and bike pump rockets are just some of the awe-inspiringly cool things kids will see in the highly interactive Museum Express Science Shows.
