Autumn School Holidays

Forget dusty old museums where you can look but not touch - this Autumn, get ‘hands-on’ with our exciting program of school holiday fun.

Complete a convict quest at Hyde Park Barracks Museum, eat bush tucker at Rouse Hill House & Farm, build a giant sandcastle at Museum of Sydney or be a bushranger at the Justice & Police Museum. There’s also an egg-cellent Easter trail along with traditional cooking classes where you can make your own damper. You’re spoilt for choice, so let those little imaginations run wild these school holidays.

Find about our school holiday opening hours.

Up to 4 kids free with every SLM Membership.



Keep up to date with family friendly events, exhibitions and our latest craft projects.
