Pirates, Passengers and Planet Protectors

Join the Australian National Maritime Museum to explore the role of play in creating memorable museum experiences for diverse audiences. We will examine both old and new education programs with an emphasis on the importance of play, such as our award winning online games and our Pirate School experience that was described by one student as “the best day of my life besides Christmas!”  We will also touch on how we utilise play with other audiences; from our youngest Mini Mariners to adults solving interactive mysteries, proving that play helps create engaging experience for anyone both onsite and online.
