Mondays at the Museum

By No Comments

Look and make at Orange Regional Museum with activities and craft for Under 5s in 2019. This free program is designed for parents/carers with children aged between 3-5 years.

Children, with help from their parents/carers and museum staff, will discover and learn from our exhibitions at the Museum.

In Term 4 2019 we’ll be drawing inspiration from our new major exhibition Underworld: Mugshots from the Roaring Twenties, featuring photographs of suspects taken by the NSW Police in the 1920s. Throughout this term’s activities we’ll explore 1920s fashion and photography, as well as work on some more devious skills like writing secret messages and cracking codes.

Sessions will be held in the Museum’s Activity Space EXCEPT for Mondays 14, 21 and 28 October which will be held in the West Room (adjacent to Orange Regional Gallery.)

Mondays at the Museum run every Monday from 10am-11am during school terms (excluding public holidays).
