Kids on Deck Activity Space

Play, create and discover in Kids on Deck - a fun filled activity space with art making, games, and dress ups for primary school aged children and their carers.


Under 5s Play Gallery

Children will take an imaginative journey from the 'sandy seashore' to 'under the sea' with free-play games, activities and displays specially designed to stimulate growing minds and inspire curiosity.

Created to meet the needs of our youngest learners, it's an exciting new addition to the museum's offering for families and young children. Kids and carers alike will enjoy a mix of modern equipment and toys (as well as timeless favourites!) that help develop literacy, numeracy, spatial awareness, and movement skills.


3D Cinema

The curated program of ocean and nature-inspired movies from internationally-respected filmmakers complement current museum exhibitions. Covering everything from great white sharks, mysterious marine creatures, submersible journeys to the deepest point of the sea and experiencing the flight of soaring migratory birds, these films delight and entertain. Escape the everyday and see the world through a new lens!
