School Holiday Program

The museum organises exciting and informative maritime themed activities during most school holidays. Details of forthcoming programmes will be posted here and on our Facebook page.

Our most recent programme, during the July school holidays, was “A day of Nautical Fun and Games”

Thursday, 13 July:  10.00 am - 12.00 noon

Thursday, 20 July:  10.00 am - 12.00 noon

Recommended ages:      6-14 years

We thought that while the weather is cold, it might be a good idea to spend the day inside. Of course, what better way to spend it than to play some games! And this time the parents can get involved as well if they like.We have a great range of activities planned, including board games, such as Battleships and Penguin Freeze Tag for younger children, and Survive - Escape from Atlantis (for older children and adults who like strategy games). 
We will have books to read and some jigsaws, plus colouring-in and craft activities. Our very own artist, Louis Rodway, will be available to provide some tips on drawing.


We will have access to a lot of space in the Carnegie Gallery, so we will also be playing a classic game often played on board cruise ships, “deck quoits”. 
 And we will have an ‘animal’ hunt through the museum. You would be surprised just how many animals we have lurking in the museum.

Cost: $5.00 per family 
(for this fee you gain entry to the whole Museum on the day)
