Tell Me a Story


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 3-5-year-old children as part of the Museums Alive for Under 5s initiative. 


Sessions are free and run for 30 minutes and are strictly limited to 12 children. Bookings are essential.
