The Wiggles Exhibition To Re-Open With Live Concert!
Mums & Bubs
By: Phoebe Ackland, ellaslist
The Powerhouse Museum’s popular Wiggles Exhibition is currently experiencing an exciting upgrade, set to open in early March with an explosive live concert by the Wiggles themselves (but unfortunately, the tickets have already sold like hot potatoes!).
The exhibition originally opened in 2011, and due to its popularity with kids and families, quickly became a permanent fixture. New features expected in March will showcase memorabilia specific to new members of the cast, including a pair of Emma’s childhood ballet shoes, Lachy’s first teddy bear as well as Captain Feathersword’s telescope. All the favourites will remain including Dorothy the Dinosaur and Wags the Dog, the introduction of new interactive activities to bring The Wiggles to life, and an upgrade to the Big Red Car to emphasise seatbelt safety to accompany the popular song “Are you Buckled Up.”
Were You One Of The Lucky Ones?
Crowd favourite Anthony Field a.k.a the Blue Wiggle said: “We are delighted that The Wiggles exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum has been so popular. As new fans join the extended Wiggles family it is wonderful to be able to share and create new Wiggles memories with them. We can’t wait to see the new experience and celebrate with a live concert!” If you were lucky enough to snag a ticket before they sold out in just a few minutes, you can expect Anthony, Emma, Simon and Lachy to chug chug chug their way onto the stage in their Big Red Car, ready to delight parents and children alike.
Can’t Wait Till March? The Powerhouse Is Still The Place To Be
Whilst the exhibition is closed for renovations, Experimenations will assume responsibility of entertaining the kids. Kids will become the scientist, engineer, thinker, artist and inventor as their science questions get answered in easy-to-understand and exciting ways. If you’re looking for a Sunday family bonding activity, then be sure to attend the Family Sundays: Egyptian Mummies program running during February and March where parents and kids can explore ancient Egyptian lives through either the eyes of an architect, artist, archaeologist or a pharaoh.
The exhibition re-opens on 4 March, and it’s FREE to check out with museum entry. See you there!
