Six indoor, purpose-built interactive zones invite students to get hands-on with a variety of topics, such as animals and their habitats, uncovering ancient objects, exploring life on board a pearling dhow and contributing ideas on preserving our environment. Three break-out spaces allow teachers to gather their students as a group to reflect upon what they have seen and done, and two creative studio spaces host art-based workshops for school groups.
The museum has a 220-seat auditorium, which is ideal for school plays and educational conferences. Books and online material relating to the displays at the museum can be browsed within the NMoQ Library.
During the winter months, there are also a range of outdoor play areas to explore.
