We are excited to announce that our welcoming, interactive “Children’s Museum” based at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg, is once again open for general school bookings and family visits. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Play Africa offered limited-access programmes at Constitution Hill. Instead, we were more active than ever as a “children’s museum without walls,” working in communities to serve over 29 000 children, parents and educators directly in 2021.
As part of Play Africa’s commitment to facilitate transformative, innovative playful learning experiences for children, parents and educators, our exhibits focus on three areas. These include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP and CREATIVE ARTS and can be experienced within our colourful space located in the Joe Slovo Courtyard.
The STEM Exhibit includes Hands on Maths, The Imagination Playground, Lego/Duplo, Farm to Market and the Magnet Ball Wall.
The ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP Exhibit includes activities from the My Constitution programme such as the Children’s Courtroom, Voting Booth and Children’s Rights.
The CREATIVE ARTS Exhibit activities include African Storytelling and Fantasy Play such as Mokoro and Incwadi Yothando.
“Our trained facilitators are on hand at all times to guide visitors through the exhibits and activities to ensure a wonderful, playful and fun learning experience for all who visit.”
“We are excited to welcome children back into our physical museum space here at Constitution Hill” says Tebogo Dube, Programme Manager at Play Africa. “Our trained facilitators are on hand at all times to guide visitors through the exhibits and activities to ensure a wonderful, playful and fun learning experience for all who visit.”

Morning Session: 9:00 – 10:30

Play Africa is a registered non-profit company and public benefit organisation, and relies on donations. Donations for booking are R80 per child.
Play Africa does not offer child-minding services, and children must be supervised by their families or school representatives at all times.
