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


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


From autumn to winter Tell Me a Story will focus on the theme of colours and patterns, with children invited to explore the exciting world of colours, patterns and camouflage in the natural world.

You can download the program here.

You can book a place for your child on the bookings page of the website. There is no need to reserve a spot for parents.

If you are unable to attend please cancel your Eventbrite booking so we can secure a place for others.
