Children are very welcome at the Museum. Not only are there close to 400 historic and significant vehicles to look at, there are also lots of fun hands-on interactives.
The History Trust of South Australia’s National Motor Museum is committed to keeping our visitors, our people and our volunteers safe. As corona virus restrictions begin to ease the full range of programs listed below may not be available to help keep you and other visitors COVIDSafe. We will update when there is more information. Please get in touch if you have questions.
Wheelie Good activity book
At the front counter each child will receive a free copy of the Wheelie Good Activity Book, which is chock full of games and puzzles to encourage interaction with the Museum collection. After exploring the Museum visit the Museum Officer’s at the front counter and they will issue your child with a Junior Driver’s Licence! But beware…this may entitle them to become the boss of the drive home!
For the little ones
For children under 5, as part of the Model Behaviour display, there is a dedicated play space filled with toy cars, blocks and books. The Museum also has an array of coin-operated rides scattered throughout the Museum. There are also baby changing facilities in the bathrooms.
Sit inside a vintage vehicle
We don’t encourage much physical interaction with the Museum collection. However, you can enjoy sitting in the 1928 Chevrolet Tourer and taking a photo. If you upload any snaps to social media don’t forget to tag the Museum!
