The Australian Museum inspires discovery, understanding and care for our world by exploring the relationship between people, culture and the natural environment.

This year in Terms 1 and 2, Mini Explorers (for kids 3 to 5) and Tiny Tots (kids 0 to 3) will be led by Aboriginal educators from Koori Kinnections. 

In the Mini Explorers program, known as Guwal Gili in the local language, we will play, learn and create in our Jarjums room. We will go on exciting adventures through Museum exhibitions and have the opportunity to contribute to a collective work such as shell artworks.

Mini Explorers: Guwal Gili is held in an exclusive space and numbers are limited to 15 children per session. There's something new every month, so join us as many times as you like!
