Fun for little architects at the National Museum
Do your kids enjoy coming up with new ideas and then making them? The National Museum of Australia are running three programs these school holidays for budding designers and architects. Firstly in "Make a Museum", kids can learn about the National Museum's building in a short tour, then design and build their own smaller scale version to take home. Consultant architect Richmond Henty will be there to encourage ideas. Cost $10 per child for children over 5. Bookings essential. See website for more details.

Another program set up is "Draw a Museum", a free area where kids can relax and draw at leisure. This area is open weekdays, 24pm.

Lastly the "Building Blocks Architecture Trail" takes kids around the Museum and uncovers interesting facts about the building. Cost $2 for the map. Available daily, 9am 5pm.
