March Family Fun 22

March Holidays Family Fun

Recommended for families with children aged 3 to 12 years

This March holidays, our Early Learning Resources take centre stage in a showcase featuring children’s artworks in response to our artefacts, and a drop-in craft activity where you can create shape viewfinders and have fun using them to spot artefacts in our galleries after. Specially on 11 March, get inspired by children’s show- and-tell of their favourite artefacts, have fun with sensory play activities, or go on a tour of the museum building. There is so March to see and do at the National Museum, and we look forward to having you with us!
