Museums and Galleries Kids Activities Melbourne
Melbourne is a fab place for art anywhere, from our top museums to the amazing range of galleries peppered throughout the city.
Whether you're looking for a fun, kid-created exhibit or if you're ready to introduce your preschooler to Picasso, you can find it in Melbourne.
ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) is the destination for young people, kids and families throughout December and January with a diverse range of creative workshops, interactive activities and film screenings throughout summer.
In a brand new initiative as part of the INTERMIX program, ACMI will launch the Creative Producers Hub, a two-week residency program designed to uncover the next crop of young creative producers, content developers, artists, performers and creative talent. Selected applicants will take part in a residency program across ACMI in Federation Square and ACMI X in Southbank under the mentorship of experts from ACMI and creative talent from ACMI X’s co-working space.
The Children’s Gallery is a wondrous place for babies to 5-year-olds where children will explore, play and learn.
Future palaeontologists will excavate fossils in our dinosaur dig; budding botanists will traverse our discovery garden, exploring plants and stories; young curators can gaze at our specially selected museum objects, and for everyone who loves to dance, there will be a ‘camouflage disco’ where children will turn into spotty and stripy disco dancing animals.
Come and get busy at the NGV International latest exhibit for kids. Chop, staple, hole punch, stick and cut your way to a creative collar (or cuff) by using crete paper, rafia and paper - you're only limited by your imagination. The kids and kidults alike will love spending a couple of hours creating then making a diorama.
