Play School Maritime Museum Exhibition

Saturday, December 7, 2019 to Sunday, March 29, 2020

Happy Birthday Play School; a landmark exhibition at the Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide.

Take a cardboard box, a paper hat, a whole lot of imagination, and you can be sailing the high seas, tackling mythical sea creatures, you can be an explorer, a pirate or a captain of your ship. This is the kind of creative learning and fun that the iconic Australian TV show Play School has offered for more than fifty years.

To celebrate, a landmark exhibition marking the program’s milestone 50th birthday is coming to South Australia and will be exclusively at the Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide from December 7 Dec 2019 – 29 March 2020.

Happy Birthday Play School is a highly entertaining and engaging exhibition celebrating Australia’s longest-running children’s television program. Visitors will find all their favourites like Big Ted, Little Ted, Humpty, Jemima and the Rocket Clock at the museum. New arrivals to the world of Play School will have a sense of wonderment as they look through the Round, Square and Arched windows.

The exhibition is presented by the South Australian Maritime Museum and is included with entry to the Museum.

Happy Birthday Play School: Celebrating 50 Years is a travelling exhibition from the National Museum of Australia developed in collaboration with the ABC.

Happy Birthday Play School will be on display at the South Australian Maritime Museum <> from Saturday 7 December 2019 – Sunday 29 March 2020
