The Adventure at the Museum 
Treat yourselves to a family outing that combines pure enjoyment with a fascinating introduction to history! On arrival at the Museum’s admissions desk, you’ll receive a free backpack* containing everything you’ll need for your Adventure at the Museum. This activity is available at all times for the permanent exhibitions Wearing our Identity – The First Peoples Collection.

*Backpacks available in limited quantities.

Exploration Cards
These game cards allow families to explore the Museum and discover the collections in a playful way. Finding geometric shapes, flowers, animals and hidden characters in the exhibition turns the visit into a treasure hunt.

This activity is available at all times for the permanent exhibitions Wearing our Identity – The First Peoples Collection.
