Virtual learning events: engaging students across NSW

MHNSW is a leader in creating large-scale virtual events that enable students across NSW and beyond to engage with history in a meaningful and memorable way.

Since our first virtual program in 2018, virtual learning events have been experienced by more than 110,000 students. These interactive online events are provided free of charge to ensure that students in regional and rural areas who cannot visit our sites have access to meaningful place-based history education.

Your support will enable MHNSW to reach students in rural and regional areas in NSW through free virtual learning events, so that all students have the opportunity to engage with history.

Ways to donate
