School holiday activities

Children will have a whale of a time at the Australian National Maritime Museum this winter in a range of activities for all ages inspired by our two major international whale exhibitions – Amazing whales – Evolution and survival and Beautiful whale – life-sized photography by Bryant Austin. Have fun making whale-inspired craft, go on an after-dark torchlight tour, take part in cool claymation and photography workshops or enjoy a hilarious circus show. With a special tour for the under 5’s on offer too there’s something for children of all ages.
