Excursion Summary

Early Stage 1
45 minutes

With four NEW workshop themes to choose from, each workshop will include exploring selected collection items, fabulous stories and a fun craft to take home. Designed for 3-5 year olds, this is the perfect excursion for early learning centres or groups of 10–20 children accompanied by their carers.


Choose between four themes:

In the Night

Pick up a torch and explore the AMAZE gallery. Join us to share stories about night time and create 'glow in the dark' craft. 

Pretty Patterns

Spots and dots, shapes and stripes -  search for patterns in the Library and make some of our own with interesting materials.

A Day on the Water

Visit the Paintings from the Collection exhibition and search for boats in the paintings. Stay a while to share some fishy stories and craft.

Cat Capers

There's a cheeky cat hiding in the Library - can you help us find him?
