The Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide


History SA operates three museums in Adelaide - the National Motor Museum in Birdwood, the Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide, and the Migration Museum in the city. During the school holidays people flock to the museums looking for family entertainment, and the museums have responded with a range of free activities for kids.

Enter the Lego Competition at National Motor Museum and Win a Prize


Free school holidays activities at the National Motor Museum:
Creating your own imaginative Lego dream vehicle with Lego supplied at the museum is one of the fun things to do here. There's a Lego trophy and a $250 Lego voucher for winners in each of the four age categories - 4-6 years old, 7-9, 10-13 and 14 . The competition will be judged and prizes awarded at the end of the school holidays.

Wizardry and Wheels Day on Sunday January 11 puts the magic back into motoring, with amazing magicians and wizards, Quidditch demonstrations, Wheelie Kids, an Enchanted Car display and dress ups, face painting and a Bouncy Castle. The National Motor Museum will be packed with children's attractions for the day, and don't forget to post a selfie with the Enchanted Car on the museum's Facebook page for the chance to win a prize.

Why not take the Onkaparinga Scenic Drive to Birdwood, and enjoy other Adelaide Hills attractions along the way?

Note: there is an admission charge for the National Motor Museum.

Gory Stories - One of the Fun Things to Do at the Maritime Museum


Free school holidays activities at the Maritime Museum:
Have you seen the live leeches and sniffed the smell-o-rama in the Rough Medicine Exhibition? Check out the ghastly instruments needed for surgery at sea too!

On weekdays from January 5-18 listen to Gory Stories about eminent barber surgeon Mr Bartholomew Buglebottom as he sets sail on HMS Rancid. Listen to new stories about his crew of unwell, stinky and scurvy-laden sea dogs, and sing along as he tells tales about even more revolting diseases and cures.

Note: there is an admission charge for the Maritime Museum.

Childrens Attractions at the Migration Museum - Build a City


Free school holidays activities at the Migration Museum:
The Migration Museum is home to a copy of Colonel Light's plan for the City of Adelaide - but do you think that you can improve on it? Come and Build a City at the Migration Museum in Adelaide - it's one of the free children's attractions from History SA during the school holidays. Between January 5-18 budding architects and town planners can use recyclable materials to help build a new city, which will be displayed on the Migration Museum website.

While you're at the Migration Museum, don't miss the new Interned: Torrens Island 1914-1915 Exhibition. It tells the story of the men who were imprisoned on Torrens Island - often for little reason, during World War 1.

Note: admission to the Migration Museum is free
