Step Back in Time
The NSW Schoolhouse Museum of Public Education provides a glimpse of schooling from the past. The museum is a popular excursion venue for schools. Students participate in a hands-on education program interacting with artefacts and re-enacting early school lessons. It is run by qualified teachers.
The NSW Schoolhouse Museum was the first building of North Ryde Public School. The original schoolroom was built in 1877 for 45 pupils with extra rooms built in 1883 and 1910. Housed in restored early schoolrooms, the museum collects and preserves objects relating to the history of public education in NSW. The museum is open for school excursions, group tours and the general public by appointment.
