The Maritime Museum in collaboration with SASTA is proud to offer a guided teacher excursion to our site.

The aim is to introduce the Maritime Museum to you and showcase the Museum as an excursion venue for your students.

The tour will start with a half hour boat ride on the Port River and then we will move into the museum where you will have time to explore the exhibitions independently and with a guide.  The tour will finish with a visit to the Port Adelaide Light House.   

The South Australian Maritime Museum is an ideal learning environment for students to explore South Australia’s unique history, our relationship with maritime culture and the marine environment.  Programs cover a wide range of curriculum areas and year levels and provide hands-on and discovery-based learning experiences.  

You will be given a teacher pack with all the information you need to book your excursion with us. This information includes the facilities available, curriculum links, available exhibits and interactive hands-on sessions.

We encourage you to make a day of it! The Port Adelaide area has so much to offer from dolphins, tours, wool sheds, the river, stockade park, lighthouse tours, ships, eateries and more.  

Teachers are to make their own way to the Maritime Museum.  

Please note: this excursion is ONLY available to current SASTA members
