The Riverina is a pretty fascinating place, you might just not know it! Just as well the Museum of the Riverina is there to give kids an insight into this amazing region of Australia!
The Museum of the Riverina always have a number of fascinating exhibitions on which cover a range of topics. They do change often, which just means you will have something new on your future visits!
They might have exhibitions on about the women during WW1, and how they risked their lives for those who were fighting. They might have an exhibition on the convicts who came to this country, with displays of what their lives would have been like. Perhaps you have a convict in the family! The exhibitions might be about Wagga Wagga itself, and the history of the streets. What used to be standing? What was sold in the shops?
The exhibitions aren't always just about the history either, which really gives kids something to keep them entertained.
Exhibitions based around science, and the principles of light, sound and the human body might be showing. These are always great for kids because they could turn into a battery, or escape from handcuffs!
The Museum of the Riverina also have a dedicated kids zone at the Museum's Botanic Gardens site, where they can discover, explore, enquire, and use their imagination! There are dress ups, books, games, and puzzles perfect for those kids aged 5 - 12.
