You’re never too young to start loving history! The first Wednesday of the month sees lots of excited toddlers exploring the Museum in a fun and creative way.
The toddler program for under-fives allows families to explore the exhibition galleries, listen to stories and bring home crafty creations.
There is a new theme each month, from walking like a Muttabuttasaurus to flying like a bogong moth, and some amazing performers and storytellers have joined the program, including musician Cherie Kotek and Indigenous storyteller Larry Brady.
In November, toddlers brought their favourite soft toy to the Museum for the Teddy Bear Hospital. Families were delighted to meet our two visiting doctors, Dr Aiden and Dr Jess, who listened to the kids’ hearts with a stethoscope, bandaged injured teddy bears and even vaccinated a fluffy turtle.
Families also explored the Museum’s Royal Flying Doctor Service display, made a paper-cup telephone and enjoyed a reading of Radio Rescue by Jane Jolly and Robert Ingpen.
Kids in the Museum
The hugely popular toddler program creates a welcoming space for kids and their families to have fun and explore the Museum.
T’riffic Tales for Toddlers on 12 December is already sold out, but explore our family activities for details of our school holidays programming.
The Museum’s toddler program will return in 2019 on the first Wednesday of every month.
We also look forward to many more exciting adventures when the Museum opens its permanent play and discovery space for families in 2020.
