Celebrating 50 Years of Playschool

There’s a bear in there… And a chair as well…

There are people with games… And stories to tell…

Open wide… Come inside…

It’s playschool!! 

Do you remember this little jingle ?

Take a trip down memory lane in an exhibition filled with Playschool nostalgia.

The National Wool Museum celebrates the huge milestone this winter, re-living childhood.

Be immersed,  wonder,  think, feel and imagine!

Find Big Ted, Little Ted, Humpty, Jemima and the Rocket Clock. Look through the Round, Square and Arched windows as we bring our childhood stories alive.

As Australia’s longest-running children’s television program, Happy Birthday Play School: Celebrating 50 Years marks a milestone birthday for this ABC TV show.

The exhibition provides a wonderful opportunity to relive your childhood memories, remember your favourite presenters and consider the changing nature and experience of Australian childhood across the past 50 years and beyond…

Don’t miss the Wool Museums very special events:

Bookings for these special events are essential!

However, bookings are NOT required for General Admission entry into the exhibition. The exhibition is included in your ticket to the National Wool Museum.

The exhibition runs from 28 June – 7 October 2019.
