This sum­mer, feel the sand be­tween your toes in Sand in the City, an in­ter­ac­tive and play­ful ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plor­ing Syd­ney’s le­gendary beaches. This Mu­seum of Syd­ney ex­hi­bi­tion – filled with sand – fea­tures gi­ant sand mod­els of the city’s fa­mous beaches and cre­ates many op­por­tu­ni­ties for imag­i­na­tive play. It is in­spired by Aus­tralians’ love of the sea­side, and in par­tic­u­lar the tac­tile en­joy­ment of scoop­ing and shap­ing sand with our fin­gers and toes. So, you’ll be able to play and in­ter­act with tiny ver­sions of the fa­mous Manly and Bondi beaches. Vis­i­tors can also cre­ate their own sand­cas­tles or shape some­thing im­pres­sive from a range of ready-made moulds us­ing over 1.8 tonnes of sand, or build their own beach land­mark in Lego us­ing more than 300,000 bricks, minifigs, trees and more. Lego cer­ti­fied builder Ryan McNaught has cre­ated Lego mod­els of some of the coast­line’s much-loved land­marks, in­clud­ing Bondi Pav­il­ion and Mac­quarie Light­house. You can cre­ate your own har­bour wa­ter­way or grassy head­land us­ing dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy and an over­head pro­jec­tor. Sur­round­ing the sand pit will be sto­ry­boards and in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays show­ing life at the beach. Sand in the City is de­signed to ap­peal to all ages – kids and adults alike.
