The Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities
Featuring the James Logie Memorial Collection
The Teece Museum and the James Logie Memorial Collection are great resources for teaching and learning. Our free education programme, sponsored by the UC Foundation, caters for primary and secondary schools, university students, and community education groups.
Primary and Secondary School Visits
The Teece Museum and Logie Collection can be used to explore a wide variety of disciplines such as classics, history, art history, social studies, geography, and fine arts. We offer guided sessions for primary and secondary schools from Year 1 through to Year 13, and community education groups. Teachers can choose from a series of set lesson plans, or the content can be tailored to meet specific learning outcomes.
The Museum is available for school groups by appointment Monday to Friday. Just call or email to make a booking.
Note that the museum is open to the public Wed-Fri from 11am-3pm. Members of the public may be in the gallery if classes are visiting at those times.

The Logie Collection offers a small number of student internships to UC students each year. Interns conduct research into the Collection, working directly with original artefacts, while earning course credit.
The Logie Collection has been a source of inspiration for numerous international research projects. We can assist students and scholars with information about the Collection for research purposes.
Images of objects in the Logie Collection are available for research and publication purposes. Use of Images is permitted subject to the provisions of the NZ Copyright Act and the conditions set out in our Image Use Policy (PDF, 273 KB). UC staff and students are welcome to include images of collection items in research papers, lecture notes, assignments and assessment projects for UC courses. We can also supply research images for use in student projects to visiting schools or educational groups.
The Logie Collection works with a number of other special collections at UC, and in the Community, that may be of interest to teachers and researchers. Find out more about how to link to other resources.
