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.
You know how much we love Scienceworks and we're delighted to tell you about the all new children's space opening up at Scienceworks in December this year. Designed for and tested by young children, Scienceworks’ new permanent exhibition for babies to five-year-olds provides an engaging, playful and safe experience that builds foundational skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) through construction-play and creative experimentation.
Come take a paddle as you dip your toes into The Pool - the latest installation at the NGV Australia.
The exquisitely-designed pool is complete with wooden decking and bespoke pool lounge chairs, with visitors invited to dangle their feet in the water and sit poolside to reflect on one of Australia’s greatest cultural icons.
This multi-sensory exhibition is the first time the installation has been shown in Australia after its highly successful viewing at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, where it received more than 100,000 visitors.
Eleven experimental artists are creating an immersive experience with other-worldly aesthetic and dramatic optical illusions, expected to draw new audiences of adults and teens as well as families to Scienceworks.
Science merges with art in an exhibition that invites visitors to engage their senses to explore the phenomena of light, sound and optics. Be immersed in a space where lasers project holographic effects to an evolving original soundtrack; enter a room of LED screens that create a spectacle to confound and entrance; and lie beneath an ultraviolet garden of floral meditation.
