Museum of the Great Southern

Codeword: Delta Charlie

Have you got what it takes to be a super spy? The Museum of the Great Southern’s Discovery Centre has been rethemed as ‘Codename: Delta Charlie’.

Collect your security pass and new code name and test your mental agility, memory and dexterity through a series of displays inspired by spies and agents from real life and their famous fictional counterparts. Can you work out the identity of the double agent from the clues hidden in the Discovery Centre?

Discovery Centre 

Using your best spy skills discover the trail of hidden clues left by the mysterious secret agent. Your mission is to pick up a security pass, create a new code name and start unravelling the hidden clues exposing the double agent’s identity. 

Dates: Saturday 26 September - Monday 12 October 
Times: 10am - 4pm
Cost: Free
Age: All ages

Spy School

The Spymaster will demonstrate the technologies used to hide and reveal messages.  Experiment with different combinations to find a formula for invisible inks, use the ‘spyglass’ to discover apparently invisible information and see if different materials can shield you from the all-powerful ‘thermal eye’.

Spy School has been supported through Inspiring Australia’s WA Small Grant 2020.

Dates: 29,30 September and 1,2,5,6,7,8 October
Times: 10.30am, 11.30am & 12.30pm

Fun at Home Kits 

As part of our COVID-19 Safety Plan we have removed some interactive exhibits and play materials from the Discovery Centre, but for inquiring young minds we have developed a range of Fun at Home Kits which can be purchased from the shop. 

These kits are inspired by the themes within ‘Codeword: Delta Charlie’ and include invisible ink pens and code generators to allow to send and decode secret messages with your friends.


Dates: Saturday 26 September - Monday 12 October 
Times: 10am - 4pm
Cost: $2-$4
Age: All ages

Programs are subject to availability. All children 12 years and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

In line with WA Government requirements and medical advice, the Museum has a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place.

We are also offering contact-free activity packages and have removed shared materials from programs and some displays.
