10 January 2011
Primary school children will have free access to cultural institutions in NSW as part of a state government program.
The Kids' Adventure Passport allows NSW primary school children free admission to 71 museums, galleries and art centres across the state.
Participating students will have their passport stamped at each cultural institution they visit and receive a recognition certificate once they collect three stamps.
Participating venues include:
- Hay Gaol Museum
- Sydney Opera House
- Elizabeth Farm
- Sydney Observatory
- Rouse Hill House and Farm
- Maitland Regional Art Gallery
- Powerhouse Museum
- Don Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame.
The program, which began on January 1, will run until 26 April 2011.
Students can have a passport sent to their home by registering on the Kids' Adventure Passport website.
NSW Premier Kristina Keneally said the passports provided an opportunity for school children to visit some of the most fascinating institutions around the state.
"The Kids' Adventure Passport will make our state's network of world renowned cultural venues more affordable and accessible for families right across NSW," Ms Keneally said.
The NSW Government has also launched the Go Play website with information on school holiday activities for families.
