Grab your ticket and enter an interactive transport world created in collaboration with illustrator James Gulliver Hancock.

Along the way you’ll discover fascinating facts about different modes of transport and types of vehicles. Construct a paper plane and see how it flies, and build a vehicle of the future to test on our track.

Discover how transportation works in busy cities, and how the fuel choices you make can have a positive impact on the environment. You’ll learn amazing facts about Australian journeys and inventions, and meet the people behind them.

See how vehicles have evolved over time – and imagine what they might be like in the future!

On the Move is an interactive exhibition curated by Sydney Living Museums' Mel Flyte.

Perfect for children aged 3 to 8 years.
