Kidspace for families

Under-5s can explore and investigate their own 'mini-museum' space for free everyday from 9.30am.

Designed especially for inquisitive under-5s and their carers, Kidspace is a dedicated 'mini-museum' that stimulates young children's imaginations and encourages them to explore the natural world. 

Kids at Australian Museum

Kids are encouraged to investigate real-life objects and specimens by peering into magnifying glasses to examine insects, looking at animal X-rays on a light table and even touching a human skeleton!
