National Maritime Museum - Playtime not over yet
Wed, 6 Feb 2013
Time is running out for Sydney families to enjoy two of the National Maritime Museum’s summer family activities - Pirates kids adventure land and WetWorld family water play area – which must close at the end of February.
Pirates! kids adventure land
Closes 24 February 2013
It’s up with the Jolly Roger at the Australian National Maritime Museum this summer in the museum’s Pirates! adventure land.
It’ll be swashbuckling good fun as kids don their cutlasses and best eye patch and transform themselves from landlubbers to fearless buccaneers, complete with their own pirate name.
To enter slide down the slippery dip. There’s a big Spanish galleon to explore, a cannon to fire and even a spooky encounter with the ghost of pirate leader Blackbeard in the captain’s cabin.
Children can wander on to Execution Dock or search for pirate loot on their hands and knees in the darkened pirate cave…but beware the sound of ghostly warning from the dark.
The special pirate scales will measure how much fledgling pirates are worth in yummy pirate booty. And they can take the challenge of following the pirate trail to find the secret treasure.
WetWorld family water play area
Closes 28 February 2013
This summer children can keep cool at the Australian National Maritime Museum in its outdoor family play area – WetWorld.
Children will have loads of fun in two fun-filled zones. The first area is for the littlies - enter through the spray arch, dance through the fountains then relax under the mist umbrellas.
The big kids can continue on to the super soakers zone to battle it out in a special water combat marquee complete with water cannons and giant water pistols.
WetWorld is recommended for children of all ages. A change tent is available and children must be supervised at all times.
Entry to Pirates!, WetWorld and Ships and the Sea, is included in the Kids Adventure Ticket - $15 children, $7 adults,
