Expressing who you are is half the fun in our programs for preschoolers (with or without a disability) and their families. Join with us to celebrate the experiences and perspectives of our children, and their rightful place amongst the fascinating stories and objects of the Museum.

Our programs aim to engage all participants with Australian cultures and histories through our exhibition themes and spaces, and through our collection of touchable objects.

As these programs are such a celebration of identity, siblings are most welcome to attend and participate. 

Music-making

Preschoolers with and without a disability are welcome.
