All your favourite Play School characters are sailing in to the Maritime Museum this December for an exhibition that brings all your childhood memories alive!

Take a cardboard box, a paper hat, a whole lot of imagination, and you can be sailing the high seas, tackling mythical sea creatures as an explorer, a pirate or the captain of your own ship. This is the kind of creative learning and fun that the iconic Australian TV show Play School has offered for more than fifty years.

To celebrate, a landmark exhibition marking the program’s milestone 50th birthday is coming to South Australia and will be exclusively at the Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide.

This exhibition is free with general museum admission.

Happy Birthday Playschool: Celebrating 50 Years is a travelling exhibition from the National Maritime of Australia developed in collaboration with the ABC.
