The wonderful opportunity, made possible by the gracious lotto contribution means that disadvantaged schools will no longer be limited to artefacts taken to their schools. Over 20 000 learners have an opportunity to be fetched from their schools, and gain a practical experience of the Museum. The funding has also ensured that these learners get lunch packs after their lessons. Museum is also busy developing learning material with information and activities that will enhance their learning.
Albany Museum has natural science, social history and a Victorian Lifestyle with a Camera Obscura buildings, and three heritage sites buildings. The three museum buildings have galleries that cover a variety of curriculum-based topics such as planets, plants, biodiversity, history, art and culture.
September, known as the heritage month, tourism month, arbor month, and reading month, is without doubt an ideal period to kicks-tart the Access-to-the-Museum Project.
