The last time we visited the "Brisbane Educational Quarter" as I call it, was on the day of the floods a few years back.
Recently we revisited and spent a day at the State Library, Museum and GOMA, but only just touched the surface.
There is always plenty to do here during school holidays and we took advantage of a free performance, free books to read, free giant games, free giant dinosaurs to stand under and free interactive art and crafts.
We had a game of giant scrabble, even more fun than the smaller version!
These guys were funny, they acted out three different books...quite unusual versions of fairytales, not the normal tales.
I enjoyed it, it is for all ages (unless you are not cool enough to enjoy well told fairytales anymore!)

APT 7 at The Gallery of Modern Art is on at the moment and we only just managed a rather quick walk through. We didn't make it to the Art Gallery.
The Museum had plenty of dinosaur activities on, including paper origami dinos and digging and other exhibitions (some queues and small fees), however the boys wanted to go back to the Library and find some books to read. There were quite a few children's vintage books on the shelves and some comfy reading chairs, so that is what we did to escape the rather warm weather.
Well done Brisbane, we love participating in these free Educational Activities.
