PlayScapes

A physical and digital playground developed in collaboration with Junior Major and Beastman

In 2023 Museums of History NSW will be celebrating a season of play by transforming the Museum of Sydney into a physical and digital playground. Activations will push your imagination, encourage creativity, innovation and problem-solving, and explore the possibilities of play.

PlayScapes is a stimulating series of engaging connected experiences that delivers opportunities for sensory, physical, cognitive, emotional and social play. Patterns and colours embody and represent the diverse and inspiring Sydney playground. Children can build and re-imagine in these interactive playscapes.

The city is your playground. Come along to imagine and build your own playscape with a sprinkling of digital magic.

PlayScapes is developed in collaboration with Junior Major and Beastman.
