Playing Shop is a fun, educational school holiday activity at Susannah Place Museum that will transport children and their parents back to 1915!

Do your children love to role play, and ‘play shop?’ Bring them along to Susannah Place Museum for a fun, educational school holiday activity in which they can learn about shop keeping of the past.

In ‘Playing Shop’, children become shopkeepers and get behind the counter of Susannah Place Museum’s re-created c1915 corner shop in the heart of The Rocks, Sydney.

Children will learn all about the ways of past generations, including how to wrap an egg, how to weigh out goods on a scale and even counting in pounds and shillings!

Just some of the fun activities children can take part in include: 

Using an old-fashioned shop scale
Packaging up goods, including making a paper cone for the lollies you’ll be taking home
Filling an order and making a ‘delivery’
Writing up orders on a slate board
Creating your own dolly peg shopkeeper!

There are sessions from 9:30am to 11am and 11:15am to 12:45pm on the below dates:
Tuesday, 16th April
Thursday, 18th April
Tuesday, 23rd April

Susannah Place Museum is an amazing step into almost 150 years of family life in the heart of The Rocks. The terrace of four houses was built by Irish Immigrants in 1844 and has been home to over 100 families since then.

It has survived largely unchanged and today tells the stories of the people and families who called this place and this neighbourhood home.

In the program some parts of the houses will be visited, however full guided tours of the museum are available at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm at an additional cost on the day. 

Playing Shop is suitable for children aged 5 and over, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Get your tickets here!

For more information, see the website or follow the Sydney Living Museums Facebook page.
