Maritime Minifigures - New school holiday activity

Following on to our popular “Pirates” and “Shipwrecks” trails is a new activity, “Maritime Minifigures”. This is also a scavenger hunt, beginning at the start of the Queensland winter school holidays.

Hidden away in our displays all over the museum are eleven minifigures of the Lego® kind. Each figure tells a different story and holds a secret letter from the alphabet.

 At the completion of the activity, all letters are put together to form a well-known maritime saying.

Collect an activity sheet at the reception desk to start your search!

After the holidays there will be a draw to determine the lucky winner and the second lucky winner, who will each be eligible to receive a kit of a Lego® ship as a prize!
