Mary MacKillop Museum is  an interactive ‘hands-on’, reflective and inspirational experience for students and teachers alike.

Teacher Resources

An important aspect of the Mary MacKillop Museum is to provide teachers with RE and History curriculum resources and activities. These have been designed by experienced educators, to promote a better understanding and knowledge of the Josephite story, the legacy of Mary MacKillop and how it continues to impact society today.
