Programs for Home School and ESL groups

Home School

Between September and June the Nanaimo Museum offers programs for home school students that fit with the BC curriculum. These programs include a guided tour of an exhibit in the museum and hands on activities that relate to the topic. The museum offers programs for both home school and distance learning individuals and groups.

Stay tuned for more virtual programs this Winter 2021.  

We are unable to welcome groups and classes into the museum at this time due to COVID-19 restrictions but will update our communication when the restrictions are lifted.


Guided tours of the Nanaimo Museum and the Bastion are available for your ESL class or group. Our tour guides will make history come alive for your students while using easy to understand vocabulary and sentence structure.
