PlayUP: The Right to Have an Opinion and Be Heard
9 am – 5 pm daily
Due to damage from the hail storm in Canberra on 20 January, PlayUP is temporarily closed. However, there is a pop-up PlayUP in the museum. Ask one of our friendly staff for directions.
Stand up, make up, think up and step up at the brand new PlayUP at the Museum of Australian Democracy.
After an exciting transformation, our imaginative family space has all-new hands-on activities to educate, excite and challenge young minds.
Discover PlayUP – The Right to Have an Opinion and Be Heard, where kids can explore the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child in a playful way. Adults can even join in the fun too! From listening pods and a roleplay Kindness Café to a fuzzy felt wall and craft activities, PlayUP has a range of exciting and immersive experiences that flip the traditional idea of museums completely on its head.
This creative exhibition space celebrates the role of children in our community and provides a welcoming environment for families to engage in the rights and responsibilities of children through imagination, discovery, roleplay and fun.
