For Schools

We welcome kindergarten, primary and secondary schools to participate in both self-guided and guided tours with an art educator. Free guided tours highlight aspects of the collection and changing exhibition displays that are often exclusive to SAM.

All SAM education tours are free but we require all school groups to book in at least one week in advance. To make a booking or to find out more information, please contact SAM (03) 5832 9861
