My World - discovery and exploration for young little minds! 

Join us on an enchanting journey designed for 2-5-year-olds. Led by our expert educators, this program blends self-discovery and museum exploration, with a focus on children's connections and contributions to the world.

From sustainability to understanding their place in the world around them, children will engage with themes that matter through exploration of the Museum objects and galleries, story, play, movement and hands-on activities.

This program aims to foster environmental care and respect, while also building children's sense of identity.

Ticket holders receive a $3 regular coffee at the Museum's Epoch Cafe located along Beaufort Street*. Please note that alternative milk options may incur a surcharge.

Week 1 | 23 & 25 July
My Museum:  What is a museum? Learn about the Museum and what happens here, exploring the objects we have and the stories they tell. Who are you? Explore your own identity and do a self-portrait. Finish the week with a sensory walk of the Museum.  

Week 2 | 30 July & 1 August
My Solar System: Look up, way up! We learn about our Solar System and visit the Origins gallery to consider our place in the universe.  

Week 3 | 6 & 8 August
My footprints: What impact do we have on the world around us? How can we care for our planet and the land around us? Complete this week with a visit to the Ngalang Koort Boodja Wirn gallery. 

Week 4 | 13 & 15 August
Water around me: This week, we explore water, consider where we use water, how we can conserve it and how important it is in our world. We'll visit the Connections gallery to find out more about oceans. 

Week 5 | 20 & 22 August
Life around me: What kinds of things live around us? Are there some things we cannot see? We'll look at life that we often forget about; things that live in the soil or life that we need magnifying glass to see!  Visit the Changes gallery to spot the many different animals that live around us.  

Week 6 | 27 & 29 August
My house, my home: What are our needs? And what makes our house our home? Investigate houses and homes and explore animal homes in the Wild Life Gallery. 

Week 7 | 3 & 5 September
My play, my way: Explore toys, old and new, and consider how we like to have fun. Visit our Reflections gallery to see some really old ways to play!

Week 8 | 10 & 12 September 

Me as an innovator: Everyone is good at something, what amazing things can you do? We'll think about things we're good at, explore what to do when things go wrong and use materials to make inventions of our own! We'll finish this session with a visit to the Innovations gallery to explore some of the incredible things that people can make and do!

Little Learners continues with Curious Minds from 17 September 2024.
