Students & Teachers

We work closely with schools and other partners to enrich student experience. Through museum visits, object-based learning, hands-on workshops, and school outreach programmes, we take learning beyond the classroom.

Our diverse school programmes seek to inspire students to learn individually and collaboratively. In an immersive environment, students are encouraged to discover the dialogue between past and the present, see cultural heritage in a new light, and combine art and technology for creative and experimental learning.

HKPM School Visit Programme

HKPM School Visit Programme

From daily objects to costumes to architecture, artefacts allow us to discover history and traditional craftsmanship, as well as the cultural exchanges that have taken place. During the visit, students can get up close to over 900 national treasures from the Palace Museum collection. Students are encouraged to engage in self-directed and cross-disciplinary learning, exploring Chinese art and culture outside of the classroom and creating a link between heritage, modern life, and personal experiences through innovative learning resources and pedagogies.

We welcome students of all ages and levels to visit the Museum. We offer docent-guided services to schools. Quota is limited. Schools successfully registered for the services will be contacted by the HKPM team to confirm the arrangement.
