Social story for a family visit with young children

My adventure to Melbourne Museum

I am going to Melbourne Museum.

I will see many different things at the museum.

I will have to wait with an adult to buy the tickets.

I will see lots of things hanging from the roof. They will not fall down.

I will see dinosaur bones. They look real but can’t hurt me.

Inside the museum, I must walk with an adult.

I will take turns with other people.

Inside the museum, I will have a quiet voice.

Some things I can touch. Some things I can’t touch. I will ask an adult which things I can and can’t touch if I am not sure.

If I get lost I can ask a museum staff member for help. Staff wear coloured straps around their necks.

Going to the museum will be fun.
