Under Construction

Don’t miss this hands-on school holiday program that will see kids using their creativity to engage in a range of exciting engineering problem-solving challenges here at the museum! 

Under Construction is ideal for children aged between 3 and 10 years old and offers fun and stimulating activities with special building zones for those under 3 years.

 Things to see and do:

Construction Station – Dream it! Design it! Build it! – Kids and adults will love this area, jam-packed full of  LEGO® ready for them to build and test their own inventions.  Includes a special under 3’s big block builder’s activity space.  Design your own masterpiece and watch it come to life using the LEGO® provided or roll the dice and let fate decide what to build. 

Build-a-Bridge Maker Space – Design and create a bridge strong enough for a train to cross over a river. Choose your construction gear from K’Nex and straws to build and test your own inventions.  Roll the dice for extension challenges.


Big Blue Blocks – Get building, engineering, and inventing with the Big Blue Blocks in the Theatrette. 

For the Tradie at Heart – learn how to build a wagon and then take it to the testing area or try your hand at some plumbing. 

Miniature Train Rides – This is a unique opportunity to view the workshops site whilst having a bit of fun with the kids. A chance to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Rides offered throughout the event. Charges apply. Operates 10am to 3pm.
