Australian Museum

Sunday Funday

Last Sunday we took advantage of the Sunday Funday rail pass ($2.50 on public transport with children). We caught the train into the city and changed trains for Museum. We walked through Hyde Park to The Australian Museum. What a fantastic day we had!

Miss 1 taking a photo of Miss 2 on the train ride....well sort of!

A few tips

*Museum costs $12 (adult) , children $5 and UNDER 5 FREE!!

*we didn’t really need our pram once we were safely in the Museum. We were able to park it up on level 2 outside the under 5’s area.

* arrived at opening time (9:30am) and there were very  few people .*We headed straight to the under 5’s section and were the only people there. There was so much for the girls to explore. We then headed straight to the Level 2 Search and Discover section. Later in the day these areas were much busier.

* I was really impressed with how much hands on experiences were available for the children.

*we comfortably explored the museum in half a day. 

*they also have a cafe with colouring activities to entertain the kids!!!

*as we packed our own lunch, our day only cost $29. A very cheap day out in the city if you ask me! !

Princess 1 is still asking to go back a week later.....

Have a great day
