Dance and sing along at the stage performance of the Aboriginal creation story, 'Tiddalik the Thirsty Frog' presented by the Ilbijerri Theatre Company . In the show, Tiddalik greedily drinks the world's water and the other animals have try to work out how they are going to make him give it back. 'Tiddalik the Thirsty Frog' is performed in the Melbourne Museum Theatre and runs for 20 minutes. It is on everyday except Saturday at 11.30am, 1.00pm and 2.00pm. The lively performance would appeal to children aged 3 to 12.

Kids can also learn about the fascinating lives of frogs at interactive Frogs Alive! sessions where a frog expert shares information about different frog species and their habitats. After the session, children have the opportunity to ask questions and see both tadpoles and frogs up close. Sessions run throughout the day between 11.00am and 3.00pm.

There is also an opportunity for children to paint, decorate and take home their own Tiddalik mask while at the museum.

If all the fantastic frog activities haven't worn everyone out the rest of the museum is just waiting to be explored.

A brilliant day out for the family, particularly in the hot weather, as the museum is lovely and cool!
