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.
Cats, one of the favourite subjects of artists Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei, will be celebrated in a dedicated, FREE exhibition in the NGV children’s galleries opening on 11 December. Both artists’ fondness for felines is well documented; Andy Warhol lived in a New York apartment with more than twenty cats called Sam (plus his favourite Hester) and Ai Weiwei’s studio is home to over thirty cats, including one who opens doors and ‘Garfield’ who winks.
The MCG is more than just a sports venue. It's a place where memories are made and childhood dreams come alive. There are fleeting moments at the 'G that stay with you forever.
Ask any Victorian and they'll be aware of the Melbourne Cricket Ground's status as the home of sport.

Whether you're seeking a fun-packed day out, need an educational distraction for restless little ones or are just at a loose end, here's an insight into what's on offer. Ready. Set. GO!
