Children's Museum at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg promoting children's rights and pioneering inclusive, exceptional learning experiences.
Play Africa believes in the potential in every child. We create spaces for children and families to come together to play, create, imagine, discover, learn, dream and connect.
South Africa and the world are on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the future of work and life as we know it. This is called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, also known as 4IR and Industry 4.0. For South Africa’s children to thrive in the 21st century, we must empower them as creative, critical thinkers. Today’s children must become flexible, lifelong learners, with ever-evolving skills to identify and solve problems with creative analysis and empathy.
OUR MISSION is to help create engaged citizens and healthy communities by inviting all visitors to discover new worlds, to wonder, to ask questions, and to imagine a better future through interactive, hands-on exhibits, programming and play.
THE BIG VISION
We are creating a major public play and learning space in Johannesburg for children, families and the greater community to come together to play, learn and dream.
We are currently based at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg where we are testing our exciting and original hands-on exhibits and programmes with children, families and schools.
Together with partners in the community we are creating a treasured institution and regional resource in South Africa.
