Hi Amy,The Little Kids' Day In is free for MV Members.
We advise that you pre-book your tickets if you are planning to visit a Planetarium or Lightning Room show, or the Wallace & Gromit exhibition. Otherwise you will be able to purchase general admission tickets at the door.
We love receiving comments, but can’t always respond.
There are plenty of hands-on activites for kids to enjoy, so an English-speaking background is not required.
At this point we haven't planned so far ahead. Generally Little Kids Day In is held on the first Monday of every month. Please continue to visit our website for updates on upcoming dates.
Little kids day in is more for pre-schoolers to be able to enjoy the facilities without older school children in on the day.
For a 7 year old, any day would be good at Scienceworks, particularly midweek afternoons as it is a little quieter during this time.
The Little Kids' Day In activities are designed for pre-school aged children. Accordingly we cater for all ages younger than 5.
We look forward to seeing you!
We do require that parents and carers supervise children at all times and our friendly Customer Service Officers are always on hand for advice.
Your twins of nine/ten months old would definitely get excited by the new experiences, they would have small spaces to crawl around and especially enjoy our exhibition Nitty Gritty Super City which is aimed at 2/3 to 5 year olds. We are endeavouring to include more tactile activities in the future to cater for your twins’ age group on LKDI events.
Thanks for your enquiry.
Little Kids Day In is specially designed for younger children and their parents, so there is plenty of space for prams throughout the Museum.
Please keep in mind that we are undergoing some major redevelopments so some of the thoroughfares between gallery spaces are more limited than usual.
We hope to see you at LKDI!
The best place for a two-year-old at Scienceworks is our Nitty Gritty Super City exhibition, which is a separate area for pre-school- and early primary-aged kids and their families. It is located upstairs and is included in Scienceworks entry ($10 for adults, free for kids and concession card holders).
We look forward to seeing you at Scienceworks!
Thanks for your comment. We advise that you pre-book your tickets if you are planning to visit a Planetarium or Lightning Room show, or any other touring exhibition. Otherwise you will be able to purchase general admission tickets at the door.
Hi Brett, we realise that Monday doesn’t suit everyone, but we aim for a day that has the least number of school children, so at this stage it will remain a Monday program.
Ur staff are very nice

We came today and my kids (early primary school aged) had a great time. Much of the Rescue exhibit was beyond their age right now (a lot of reading and puzzles)...
