Sail-World.com : Australian National Maritime Museum – cool summer fun at WetWorld
Australian National Maritime Museum – cool summer fun at WetWorld

Jude Timms

The Australian National Maritime Museum is offering kids the opportunity to enjoy and feel refreshed throughout the summer with a number of water activities and games lined up in its new outdoor family play area - WetWorld - which will officially open on December 28.

Children will have loads of fun in two fun-filled zones catering for under sevens and seven to 14 year olds. The first area is for the littlies - enter through the spray arch, dance through the fountains then relax under the mist umbrellas.

The big kids can continue on to the super soakers zone to battle it out in a special water combat marquee complete with water cannons and giant water pistols.

This summer, the Australian National Maritime Museum is inviting families to spend a day at the museum joining in the sea adventures. WetWorld runs alongside the interactive exhibition, Ships and the Sea, where children can learn to be captains in a range of hands-on displays exploring the science of ships and shipping. Plus the already popular Pirates! kids adventure land, where children can transform themselves from landlubbers to fearless buccaneers, continues its successful run.

The museum is also offering a full program of school holiday activities for children of all ages including daily Sailing with Swashbucklers! pirate craft activities. For full details visit Australian National Maritime Museum

WetWorld opens on 28 December and runs strictly for a limited season. It is recommended for children of all ages. A change tent is available and children must be supervised at all times. For full terms and conditions see Australian National Maritime Museum Summer.
