Planning your visit
Timing your visit
The Museum is open 10am - 4pm daily. Class visits can be organised any weekday between 9am and 3pm.
Duration of visit
The duration of your visit will depend on the particular school visit program you choose. Otherwise we recommend allowing at least 1½ hours complete your program and view the galleries.
The recommended group size for led activities is 30 students. This ensures that the students enjoy the best possible learning experience. Two or more groups can run concurrently.
The Schools Risk Assessment Guide (114 KB) is intended to assist teachers/group leaders when completing their own risk assessment during a preliminary visit to Cobb+Co Museum. Please also familiarise yourself with the evacuation map (1152 KB) .
Lunch/morning or afternoon tea
School groups are welcome to bring lunch or morning or afternoon tea and eat outside under our shingle roof or shady trees. Or you may like to speak to our Education Officer about a School's Lunch Package.
There are two sets of toilets available for visitors. One is located on the south side of Cobb's Coffee Shop and one just outside The Factory. It is recommended that students use the toilets adjacent to the Factory.
Ramp access is available for wheelchairs. Assistance is available on request for other special needs. More information for visitors with individual needs.
