During the festival of Sukkot, it’s tradition for Jewish families to build a shelter or a sukkah – symbolic of the time Israelites spent in the wilderness after being freed from slavery in Egypt.

Join us at the museum for a special interactive family workshop for kids aged 5 to 10 that explores themes of environmentalism, displacement and the open home as they relate to the festival of Sukkot.

Children will learn about the origin, philosophy and design of a sukkah, as they immerse themselves in “building” their own mini shelter using a range of interesting materials. They will also have the chance to take part in a unique sensory experience, encouraging them to explore the sounds, tastes and feelings of the high holidays.

$25 per child, parents enter free.

Bookings are essential. Tickets include entry to the museum as well as this interactive workshop. Each child must be accompanied by an adult guardian. Please ensure you inform us of any allergies your child might have via the booking form below.
