Captain Drake has lost his treasure. We must find it for him!

Museums are wonderful places. Come on a journey of wonder and discovery, looking, touching – and even smelling – to explore the galleries and solve a mystery.

We sing and talk, ask questions, play games and take a really close look at the things around us.

Captain Drake has lost his treasure. He sailed right around the world and found lots of special things. We must find them for him!

First, let’s peek inside our very own treasure chest. What’s hidden inside?

Now we can go on our treasure hunt. We’ll need to be good sniffers, lookers and listeners if we are going to find the Captain’s missing treasure.
