Where can you take the kids during the April school holidays without breaking the bank? The Museum of Brisbane (MoB) has the answers. From 2 to 18 April, there are many reasons to make MoB your hub for the school holidays. Best of all, entry is free.

Time: 10am-1pm
Date: Every Tuesday During School Holidays
Venue: The Studio

3) Learn How to Make a Lantern

Kids can enjoy a guided tour of the Brisbane City Hall and learn the secrets of this working civic building which has been the setting for many cultural, social and civic events in Brisbane's history.

The tour begins in the King George Square foyer on the ground floor of City Hall.
