Dino discos, educational playdates, storytimes and more at Melbourne Museum this Autumn

The every changing, ever-evolving Melbourne Museum has something for everyone and this Autumn is no exception. Preschoolers and primary aged school kids can participate in a variety of scheduled educational activities. Such programs include:

Museum Playdates

Museum Playdates is Melbourne Museum's latest program, specifically designed for 2-5 year olds. Museum Playdates run for an hour and are facilitated by a resident Museum learning expert.

Museum Playdates

Museum themed playdates differ each month. The first playdates for the year on February 26 and March 26, are Rock Playdates – where preschoolers are invited to learn all about rocks and the minerals that form them in a geology-inspired program.

A special sensory-friendly session begins before normal opening hours, from 9am to 10am, and an all-systems-go session at 11am to midday.

Costs: $14 member / $16 child member. Participating adult free with general entry ($15 for non-members, free for members)

Hello Museum Dino Disco

Stomp along to the Hello Museum Dino Disco on Saturday 30 March for an evening of dance and dinos.

The Science and Life Gallery and the Pauline Gandel Children’s Gallery will open up after hours, so you can bop along to the Museum's very own Dino DJ. Aimed at children aged 4 – 12.

When: Saturday 30 March, 6-8pm
Costs: General entry $18
Member entry $14

Hello Possums Story Time

From Monday to Friday, the Pauline Gandel’s Children Gallery comes alive with adventures and mysteries from the Hello Possums Story Time collection. Suitable for ages 0 – 5, subject to storyteller availability. Dress ups are very welcome. There will be a special National Archaeology Week edition of Storytime in May 2019 so keep an eye out for that.

Costs: Free with general entry.

Hilarity in Print

In special homage to Melbourne’s Cole’s Book Arcade – the largest bookstore in the world during the 19th century – the Melbourne Museum has created their own version of one of their most popular titles, the Giant Funny Picture Book.

Hilarity in Print

Every Sunday from 11 – 3 throughout February and March, you’re invited to help fill it up. Write, draw or pen a poem – from your favourite joke to your silliest made up character, anything funny goes at Hilarity in Print.
