Creative Play for Under 5s

Young children and their carers can enjoy some creative play time together including art, music, stories, song and dance. The program changes each month. Come and enjoy a morning of fun hands-on activities. It’s a great way to meet other parents.

This is a free activity but bookings are essential. All attending adults and children require a ticket. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Self-directed activities

Visitors can hire a MAP Play kit to enjoy self-directed STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) activities in Speers Point Park.

Music kits

Designed for small group play, these kits use music to help children understand the concept behind conductive electricity. Create your own band and make your own music using anything that conducts electricity - a spoon, pipe cleaners or even yourself!

Kits cater for up to four people and can be hired for one hour. Cost: $8 for one hour.

Available from 19 January 2022.

Bookings for the packs can be made in person at MAP mima during opening hours. Hirers will be asked to leave contact details and proof of identity for return of kits.

Adventure packs

Enjoy MAP mima inside and out with five art activities that encourage young people to look a little closer, discover a little more and find inspiration in the exhibitions and surrounding landscape. Each backpack contains art materials and activity guidelines. Take your creations home and leave the materials for us to clean up.
