Creative and educational activities for 2-5-year-olds and their parents/carers.

Every month, Mini Mariners welcomes 25 year-olds and their parents/carers.

Explore the galleries, sing and dance in interactive tours with costumed guides. Enjoy creative free play, craft, games and story time in our themed activity area.



Theme: Silly Sea Creatures
Explore amazing creatures that live under the sea through movement, songs and storytime in a fun and interactive learning program especially designed for toddlers. Afterwards head to the activity space for crafts and messy play.


Theme: Drip Drop Splash
Pack your bags for an imaginative journey up, off and away, overseas in a special character tour. Explore different cultures and places from across the seas. Sing songs, dance and enjoy storytime and creative crafts- make a flower lei, a paper lantern or a puppet to take home.


Theme: Pirates Ahoy
Let's follow the treasure map around the museum to find the secret treasure cave. Learn how to sing, dance and scrub the deck like a pirate. Then you can decorate your own pirate hat or parrot puppet to take home and enjoy some special pirate science experiments.
