Educational programmes at Maritime Experiential Museum

History and social studies are best learnt with hands-on practical experiences rather than out of a text book.

From March 2018, the Maritime Experiential Museum will introduce two immersive learning programmes for school groups that complement the Ministry of Education’s Social Studies (Primary) syllabus and History syllabus. These engaging programmes are designed to help students gain a better appreciation of social, historical and cultural issues that they are inquiring into from an authentic Field-based Learning experience at the museum.
