Gallery Activities

The Great Museum Explorer

A colourful gallery activity where children are on the hunt for artefacts in the galleries.   At the same time they can be on the lookout for the ship brass rubbings dotted around the gallery.  With five to find they can see if they can collect the fleet.  Kids also get to keep a cool Museum pencil. Cost: $1:50

Salty Sea Dogs Activity Book

This activity book is for use in our galleries to enrich and educate. Some activities must be done in the galleries, others can be done at home to continue the fun. With 15 activities, there is plenty to do. The Salty Sea Dogs Activity Book comes with a pencil, temporary tattoo and origami paper. Just $4 per book.

Please purchase your gallery activities at Museum Reception
