MoB Kids school holiday program

Secret stories

Inspired by Indigenous artist Robert Andrew’s exhibition Our mutable histories, learn how to write a secret story using wax and crayon in our family-friendly workshop. Give your story to your friend/parent/grandparent and watch them reveal the message. Recommended for ages 4+, all ages with a little help.

Mon 26 June – Sun 2 July, 10am – 4pm,  FREE

100% You: badge-making

Using our award-winning exhibition 100% Brisbane as inspiration, create a mini self-portrait and then transform it into a badge – a contemporary cameo brooch of sorts. Recommended for ages 4+, all ages with a little help.

Mon 3 – Sun 9 July, 10am – 4pm,  FREE

100% Discovery

See our city through the eyes of some of its youngest residents in the ground-breaking exhibition 100% Brisbane. Explore the exhibition with a zigzag activity booklet and add your stories to the ABC Brisbane radio booth. Recommended for ages 4+.

Mon 3– Sun 9 July,  10am – 4pm,  FREE

Clock Tower tours

Experience the magic of our Clock Tower tours. From stepping into the original 1930s hand-operated lift, travelling past the Art Deco-styled clock face to the final platform at 64 metres for a bird’s-eye view of the city. There is a reason that this has been time-honoured tradition for Brisbane families for almost 90 years.

Daily, 10.15am – 4.45pm and Friday nights until 6.45pm (every 15 min),  FREE.

Please note: Huge demand for tours means spots are allocated daily on a first come, first served basis. There are no reservations.

Hint: Arrive early for school holiday activities and get your tickets at the front desk on arrival.
