MAGNT Kids Club is on a Sunday morning from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
Sweetheart the crocodile and the Transformations Gallery (Natural Sciences) is a hit with young and old! Sweethearts exhibition has children’s labels and a button than can make him roar which is sure to enthral the children. There is a free ‘Who am I?” activity for children to complete (with the help of mum, of course!) in the Natural Sciences gallery all day, every day too.
