Families at MoAD
Elect MoAD for your family day out!
With imaginative play spaces, crafting workshops and inquisitive museum trails, MoAD is the perfect family day out. There is a range of family exhibitions, events and activities that poke their tongue out at the idea that museums are hands-off.
Stand up, make up, think up and step up at PlayUP, an interactive exhibition space for the young and young at heart. PlayUP has a range of colourful and immersive experiences that flip the traditional idea of museums completely on its head.
Don’t miss the free craft activity every day from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm.
Go on an adventure through the museum with an Action Pack. Little ones can saved the world on the Superhero Museum Trail, break the news with a Press Gang Action Pack or go bird watching in the gardens with the Stanley Action Pack.
DressUP will be closed from 29 October 2019 to allow for building works. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Think about how you can change the world as you connect with the lives of Malala, Dr Karl, Queen Bey and more. In DressUP, try on costumes inspired by their iconic outfits as you explore the choices they made in order to make a difference in the world.
The Zine Lounge will be closed from 29 October 2019 to allow for building works. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Unleash your creativity in the brand new Zine Lounge—a place for young people to meet, read, and create.
Relax on the lounges and read any of the many zines available, or if inspiration strikes you can write, sketch, stick or staple together a cool little book about what’s going on in your world.
MoAD is open 9 am – 5 pm daily. Admission is $2 adults, $1 children and concessions, and $5 family.
For visitors unable to use stairs, lift access is available via the lower entries located at the front of the building, either side of the main stairs.
