Incursions

Museum of Brisbane welcomes you to our Brisbane in a Suitcase Incursions program.

We’re packing our suitcases and traveling to your classroom! As part of the incursions program the Museum offers incursions for two topics; Perspectives of Brisbane and Living Culture: Sharing first nations stories.

Brisbane in a Suitcase: Perspectives of Brisbane

We’re packing our suitcases and traveling to your classroom to take students on a journey back in time to when horse drawn trams traversed Brisbane streets and children bathed in the Brisbane River. This incursion program provides opportunities for students to develop historical understanding through key concepts including continuity and change, cause and effect, perspectives and empathy.

Step into the role of a Museum Curator as, magnifying glass in hand, you compare and investigate original objects and photographs from the past and present. Understand how toys, transport and technology have changed over time via hands-on learning as we bring the Museum to you!
