Young Explorers


Young Explorers is a program designed so that children and their families  can enjoy an interactive experience that immerses them in the stories, objects and spaces of the South Australian Museum.

Experienced facilitators use play experiences to engage the senses, incorporating story, song, movement, rhyme, observation, exploration, communication and tactile sensations in each session.

This hugely popular program is designed especially for 3-to-5 year-old children.

Brr! Young Explorers, our fun and educational sessions for 3-to-5-year-olds, is off to the Antarctic! Let’s travel on the ship Aurora and discover what it was like to travel to Antarctica with Douglas Mawson.

Please note: This program has been specially designed for children aged 3 to 5 years – if you are bringing an accompanying sibling less than 3 years of age, please care for your younger child to allow the older sibling to fully enjoy the program.

You do not need to print your ticket. Our educators will check your name off at the beginning of the session.

Young Explorers is made for small family groups rather than childcare groups. If you are planning on coming to the Museum with a childcare group, please call 8207 7575 or email to discuss your visit.
