The Museo Italiano attracts many visitors from the local community, interstate and overseas. It is a place for all to learn about the rich history of Italian migrants and their contribution to the multicultural society that makes up Australia. Many primary and secondary schools plan excursions to the Museo Italiano where students can conduct a self-guided tour or participate in staff-led presentations, with related educational materials to enhance their learning experience.
This year, many secondary schools have visited the Museo Italiano with their sister-school exchange students from Italy, and had an opportunity to share knowledge, experiences, network and practice both their English and Italian proficiency. This rich exchange between students from different countries helps develop global perspectives and understanding of diversity and other cultures. The Italian exchange students eagerly affirm the benefit gained from the experience and will undoubtedly bring home many memories of their time in Melbourne and special visit to the Museo Italiano in Carlton.
