There are plenty of free activities for kids and families available every day at MAGNT Darwin, MCA and MFC in Alice Springs!
MAGNT DISCOVERY CENTRE
The Discovery Centre is a fun and creative space for kids and families. Drop in daily from 1.30-4pm for free activities; pull up a comfy bean bag and explore the children’s book and puzzle library or just enjoy a bit of quiet time out with your youngsters.
MAGNT PIG-NOSED TURTLE FEEDING
Join the pig-nosed turtle and his friends in the Monsoon Garden for feedings every Thursday morning at 10am. Learn fun facts from MAGNT Natural Sciences staff about this unique reptile found only in Northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, whose conservation status is listed as vulnerable with the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
Settle in with the kids, colour your own dromornis stirtoni and enjoy educational games and puzzles among the museum's animal displays.
Pick a puzzle and piece together a creature from eons past, or channel your inner palaeontologist, unearthing 'Miocene fossils' from the hands on archeological dig activity.
