Museum on the Move: Family festival

FamilyFestivalDay

Saturday 26 January
10.30am – 2.30pm

FREE  The Hall

Inspired by the planes, trains and automobiles on show in the Hall, we are celebrating ‘Museum on the Move’, themed around the large objects in the Hall and the different kinds of transport people have used to travel around Australia.

Enjoy live performances from Barking Spider Visual Theatre and horse-drawn carriage rides around the Peninsula. Design and make your own train, plane or automobile in our Discovery Space and see display models of different kinds of transport.
