Drop in to our Discovery Space program during the school holidays. Engage with exhibitions by creating your own innovative take home piece or contribute to collaborative activities.
Bunting, badges and bowties
During the autumn 2013 holidays we asked young visitors to imagine what life would have been like 100 years ago.
Inspired by the exhibition Glorious Days: Australia 1913, we blended the 'old' with the 'you' and created costume accessories from 1913, including an old-fashioned hat and badge. Once dressed to impress, we transported our visitors back in time for a vintage photo!
During the 2013 summer school holidays, children and their families were inspired by the amazing Tasmanian bark canoe in the Discovery Space. After learning how the canoe was made, they designed their very own small-scale raft using bamboo and twine and had their photos taken with a tropical background.
