Lucy's Adventures, an app from the Australian National Maritime Museum, encourages children to explore our links with the sea through pictures, movies and puzzles. It's a great way for kids aged 3 to 7 to stay entertained, hone important skills, and learn what one of the world's coolest museum's does.
Alongside the Museum's intrepid young explorer, Lucy, kids will meet Viking characters and sea creatures, Pirate characters and objects, and travel to far-off tropical islands – creating and saving their own stories as they go.
Even better, this colourful and educational app keeps on entertaining children, with regular updates of new puzzles, themed backgrounds, characters, and objects. Parents can also use the app to stay abreast of the museum's latest events, including the popular Family Fun Days, programs for Mini Mariners (under 5s) and activities for Kids on Deck (ages 5-12).
Lucy's Adventures is a fun and safe way for the whole family to connect with the museum's fascinating stories about the sea and learn how it's shaped our lives.
What kids can do:
