MoPA™ is designed for ages 1 to Early Primary.
MoPA™ is designed for ages 1 to Early Primary, however it's important to note that every child develops differently; and some older children (Ages 7-9) will also find lots of enjoyment in the exhibits and activities at MoPA.
Only food from MoPA™ Cafe may be consumed.
Many families have Children with allergies and/or intolerances; and the only way to ensure these families remain safe from exposure to these food items is to place controls in place in the MoPA™ cafe. We ask kindly, for the safety of all visitors, that only food from the cafe is consumed at the Museum.
Book a Morning, Midday or Afternoon play, on any day except Monday.
Visitors must book and arrive during a morning, midday or afternoon session times, but the duration of your stay is entirely up to you!
Note: In order to maintain a wonderful experience for all guests, your booking will grant you entry only during the specific time you book. There is no limitation on visit duration; you're free to stay and play until close!
If MoPA's small visitor carpark is full (12 spaces, accessible via Cullins Place), here's a quick guide to where you'll find either free or very affordable 2-hour parking very close to the Museum.
On busier days, approx 10-20% of the 86 two-hour carparks nearby are still available. We recommend aiming for a green unlimited park, or an orange 2-hour park.
Weekends & Holidays:
Parking during quieter times (weekends and/or holidays) is very easy to find, all around MoPA. You will rarely need to walk more than 50m from an available carpark.
Open Tuesday to Sunday
