Fun and Learning for Under 5s
The Maritime Museum welcomes 2-5-year-olds and their parents/carers!
Every month, Mini Mariners welcomes 2-5 year-olds and their parents/carers. Expect lots of fun with games, crafts, storytime, tours and more. Our interactive gallery tours are led by a costumed guide and there is art-making and free play in our themed activity space.
Follow the treasure map around the museum to find the secret treasure cave. Learn how to count your treasure, sing, dance and scrub the deck like a pirate. Enjoy some special pirate science experiments, and then decorate your own pirate hat or pirate puppet to take home.
Date: Tuesdays until 30 May
Time: 10am or 11am
A is for anemone, Z is for Zebrafish. Travel through the alphabet of all things furry, feathered and finned as we spot amazing animals in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.
Enjoy touch tours with creature specimens, movement, songs, games, craft and free play in our themed activity space.
Make your own block printed tote bag, animal puppet or hat to take home.
Date: Tuesdays 18, 25, Saturday 22 JULY*
* During school holidays we do not have our regular Mini Mariners activity sessions but we do have an expanded tour and story time followed by free play at Kids on deck in our Alphabet Animals Program
Pack your bags for an imaginative journey up, off and away over-seas in a special character tour for under 5s and their carers. Explore different cultures and places from across the seas. Sing songs, dance and enjoy story time. Then you can create your own collage creatures or print a calico book bag to take home.
Date: Tuesdays 6-27 and Saturday 10 June.
Please meet at the foyer 5–10 minutes before the program and collect your sticker from the front desk. If you arrive early or want to stay longer, you can explore our galleries and our Mini Mariners Play space or grab a coffee from the Kiosk or Yots cafe.
