Family Fun at the Museum | Sydney

This activity has been postponed. If you have any queries, please email activities @fortemaustralia.org.au. We will advise with a new date when we have one. Thank you for your understanding.

First responder families, let’s explore the museum! An afternoon of family fun at the Museum, exploring the drama and danger of firefighting and learning about the history of fighting fires. Plus the chance to enjoy lunch with other first responder families! One of the most popular family attractions in Penrith and home to an impressive collection of fire-fighting vehicles and memorabilia, there’s enough here to keep even the littlest firefighters occupied for hours. Enjoy a an interactive learning experience for all ages.

This is a great way to strengthen family / kinship group bonds and resilience, as well as to connect with other first responder families. Connection is an important part of the path to mental fitness, and can take a protective role in maintaining wellbeing.

Children will have access to the Junior Firefighters Zone, where children can take part in a day of adventure and exploration with fire safety activities, computer games, puzzles and dress ups. The perfect day out for your little firefighter! There is also the option to ride on a historic fire engine. For children aged 8-14, there’s even a scavenger hunt! Being active helps to build resilience and wellbeing, and plays a major role in maintaining mental fitness. It helps us to cope with stress, gives us more energy and confidence, as well as improving quality of sleep and reducing negative thoughts.

Learning new things boosts self-confidence and provides a sense of purpose. This is a great opportunity to share a new experience with your family /kinship group while building on your knowledge.
