Event description

Description

Join GFSG Inc for a family day of fun exploring the Australian Museum - and "meet" a mammoth!

Attendees who pre-purchase have the benefit of securing their attendance at a reduced rate and avoiding queues on the day. Additional discounts are provided for current financial GFSG Inc members. Please note special prices are also available to adults who have current Museum of Australia membership, however valid documentation will be required on the day or the full fee will be incurred.

Tickets for general museum attendance can be purchased directly from the museum on the day of the event, subject to availability, terms and conditions as determined by the Museum. Please direct any enquiries regarding at-the-door sales directly to the museum. Tickets purchased on the day will not be discounted, and will be for general admission, not inclusion in the GFSG Inc excursion.

Attendees will gather outside the museum entrance at 10:15, for a 10:30am start. We will enter as a group, allowing the provision of wrist bands for entry to the mammoth exhibit. Once inside the museum, attendees are free to tour the museum in groups, or as a family. This self-guided touring allows the pace to be determined by the level of interest of the children in each exhibit.

The self-guided nature of this excursion makes it suitable to all ages. Of note however, it is not a "drop off" activity, and children remain in their parents' care at all times.

Additional activities are available on the day, including a "create a mammoth" craft activity, as well as film screenings, workshops and a science show. Families will be responsible for booking additional activities upon entry. Entry with GFGS Inc includes general entry and entry to the mammoth exhibition, as well as free activities including crafts. Individual bookings are required to attend the science show.

Families may wish to arrange to meet for a picnic in the park at lunch time. Re-entry to the museum is free on the same day.

Please note the following:

- Bags, food and drinks are not permitted in the museum. All bags will be cloaked on arrival.

- Parents/guardians remain responsible for children in their care at all times. GFSG representatives are present to facilitate the excursion and promote enjoyment of the exhibits, but are not responsible for supervision of attendees.

- The museum advises the exhibits are enjoyed by people aged 3 years to adulthood, with different age groups accessing the information in different ways and at different levels. Younger children are welcome to attend, but it will be at their parents' discretion as to how much they will interact with and enjoy the exhibits. There are a number of different exhibits within the museum that may appeal to older students.

- Although the excursion concludes at 1:30pm, this is a guide only and guests are welcome to remain and explore the museum at their leisure until closing.

- Discounted parking can be secured through ticket validation - please see the museum website for details of eligible parking stations and the required process.
