My Little Museum
My Little Museum is a free *HSIE stage 2 portable education program that allows students to explore the theme of cultural diversity and migration while introducing them to aspects of Wagga Wagga's history and the Museum of the Riverina's permanent collection whilst in the comfort of their classroom.
The portable education kit is a suitcase that contains teachers' notes, 11 different student activity sheets, resource materials, and hands-on objects suitable for full class participation.
After completing this program we encourage you and your class to visit the Museum of the Riverina at our Botanic Gardens Site. Here you can see parts of the From all four Corners exhibition that this program was based on as well as experience other children's activities such as Kidzone, Wii Sports and Kidztrack.
