Heya.

Little Day Out is a curated list of fun things to do for kids in Sydney. We save you time by selecting just six weekend activities we think are the best of what's on

Museum of Sydney - Alphabetical Sydney Creative Lab, 10am - 5pm, From $8, Age: All

Museum of Sydney - Alphabetical Sydney Creative Lab, 10am - 5pm, From $8, Age: All

Let your imagination run wild in a creative laboratory full of the sights and sounds of Sydney.

Alphabetical Sydney: Creative Lab is an interactive exhibition that celebrates Sydney in all its diversity, from A to Z. The exhibition has been produced in collaboration with illustrator Antonia Pesenti and author Hilary Bell, creators of the best-selling book Alphabetical Sydney. Sydney is brought to life with a series of creative activities designed to capture your imagination and encourage you to think about the magic of the city, from the icons to the suburbs, from the mundane to the wondrous.

A souvenir Lab Kit, specially created for this exhibition, leads visitors through the show using playful illustrations and rhyming verse. Visitors can investigate the clues in the mini museum, write their own verse in the poetry factory, experience the magic of Sydney at dusk or relax with a book under the canopy of a Moreton Bay fig tree. The sounds of the city in all their intensity and diversity are hidden throughout – deafening cicadas, clanging construction, an elephant’s trumpet from the zoo.

Budding artists and authors and anyone with a sense of fun and a capacity to dream will all enjoy. Take the opportunity to write and draw your way through the city you love.

Daily storytime at 10.30am
Join us daily at 10.30am in the exhibition for a book reading. Each day we choose a new book to read under the canopy of the Moreton Bay fig tree.
