The University Museum's exhibits centre around natural and cultural history topics. They are a central tool with which the museum has created a leading national environment for public outreach, featuring innovative ways to share knowledge of the natural world, culture, science and technology.

The museum features both permanent and visiting or temporary exhibitions. We are especially interested in engaging children and young adults with topics in science and technology that present ideas in a critical and engrossing way.

Students of all ages, from preschools to secondary schools, are welcomed to the museum's varied school programmes. The museum has grade-based and learning plan-based offerings associated with almost all of its permanent and temporary exhibitions. ­
