What better way to introduce children to objects of our past and human history than through an art and archaeology museum school holiday program. Just 40mins north of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia is a wonderful museum with a generous size collection of artifacts on display. The museum is set out in a logical order -a timeline of history. It can be walked through (if reading the didactic and information panels) between 30-60mins. But that is more for the adults than the kids. However, there are some lovely murals painted on the walks which document a visual representation of times past which the kids would enjoy looking at.
In terms of the offering for the school holidays public programs, I was very impressed with the number of activities available and the variety:
Overall this has been one of the best kids programs I have experienced yet, but, as my child gets older, she is able to participate in more things.
Check out The Abbey Museum for their school holiday program.
