About Play Africa

About Play Africa

Play Africa is the first interactive children’s museum in Southern Africa. We bring 21st century learning to children through our programmes, parent support and educator training. We get children excited about science, technology, engineering, maths (STEM) and the arts. Through playful learning, we equip children with the skills they need to succeed in the future. We are based at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In 2021, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Play Africa has pivoted to expand our reach and provide new free online resources to children around the world. Our online hub features storytelling for children and resources for parents and educators on coping during this stressful time. You can also order one of several free Activity Packs for your child. Starting in March 2021, Play Africa will also offer limited playful learning sessions, following strict Covid-19 protocols, at our base at Constitution Hill – click here to sign up.
