Our venue is located close to Pasterfield park which makes a great morning tea or lunch time spot for students or for educators to run additional activities.
New resources and programs are being developed for educational groups at Sugar Valley Library Museum and we are interested in collaboration with educators to co-design and pilot meaningful and exciting experiences for students.
