There are plenty of free activities for kids and families available every day at MAGNT!
The Discovery Centre is a fun and creative space for kids and families. Drop in daily from 1-4pm for free arts and craft activities; pull up a comfy bean bag and explore the children’s book and puzzle library or just enjoy a bit of quiet time out with your youngster
Peer into the microscope and draw an amazing micro world onto Perspex discs to be displayed in the Discovery Centre! Inspiration will be drawn from artist Joanna Roberts’ installation of Darwin’s flora and fauna as it begins to decorate the walls.
Take on the MAGNT Explorer challenge by solving cryptic clues that will lead you through the galleries. Each explorer to complete a trail wins a prize. Pick up your MAGNT Explorer pack from the friendly staff at the foyer information desk.
