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

Australian National Maritime Museum - Arctic Voices, 9.30am - 5pm, From $20

Australian National Maritime Museum - Arctic Voices, 9.30am - 5pm, From $20

Despite its seemingly remote location, the Arctic is connected to all of us. Arctic Voices is a family-friendly exhibition that will take you on a journey to this fascinating and changing region.

The Arctic is more than just snow: it is land, water, and ice. It is home to people and wildlife. It is a place of rapid change. Find out what affects the Arctic and in turn, how the Arctic has an impact on the whole planet.

Take a closer look at the connections between life on land and life in the sea. Pounce, hop, push and crawl your way through animal life in the Arctic. Travel with scientists as they catch and tag Arctic whales. Go on a garden tour to see how plants have adapted to survive and thrive in this harsh environment.

Hear from the people that inhabit this region as they share their knowledge and unique culture. Participate in throat singing, a traditional art with modern applications. Meet some of the scientists documenting and studying the implications of a changing north. Challenge your perceptions of the Arctic and discover a colourful land that’s actually closer to your own backyard than you think.
