TOP THINGS TO DO WITH KIDS IN ADELAIDE IN NOVEMBER

happy birthday playschool maritime museum
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PLAY SCHOOL EXHIBITION AT THE SA MARITIME MUSEUM

NOVEMBER – JANUARY 2021

Take a cardboard box, a paper hat, a whole lot of imagination, and you can be sailing the high seas, tackling mythical sea creatures as an explorer, a pirate or the captain of your own ship. This is the kind of creative learning and fun that the iconic Australian TV show Play School has offered for more than fifty years.

To celebrate, a landmark exhibition marking the program’s milestone 50th birthday is on display at the Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide. It’s the exhibition that brings all your childhood memories alive!

This nostalgic exhibition has been a favourite for families this year, and now has been extended through to 31 January! Come and visit or re-visit Big Ted, Little Ted and Jemima and all your other favourites this summer.
