The Workshops Rail Museum at North Ipswich is getting set for a massive school holiday program!

Get your hard hats ready to create a masterpiece with LEGO®, Straws and K’Nex from 24 June to 9 July 2023, with a special sensory day on 5 July. (For this very special day we will turn the sound down and create and engaging and fun space that children with sensory processing difficulties can share with their families and carers.)

Little Builders – Dream it! Design it! Build it! Test it!

This area is jam-packed full of Lego, Straws and K’Nex ready to build and test your own inventions. Design your own masterpiece and watch it come to life.
Don’t forget our under 3’s big block builders activity space, full of larger blocks, Duplo, plastic tools and more!

Tiny Tradies
