Sydney Living Museums autumn holiday program is full of fun experiences to entertain the kids! From immersive convict theatre to cooking workshops, boomerang art to playing shop, children’s exhibitions and family fun-tours – there’s something to suit the interests of every child.  

Convict Escapades
Take part in an immersive theatre experience for families like no other! Get ready to choose your own adventure, working your way through the convict system to earn your prized ‘ticket of leave’. You’ll come face to face with some of the notorious and colourful characters that lurk around every corner – take orders from the nasty superintendent, meet the lovesick cook, be tricked by the convict ‘magpie’ in his clownlike suit, and avoid being punished by the shifty scourger. With stories to hear, a court trial to attend and many fun jobs to do, you’ll have to keep your wits about you to earn your freedom in time.
