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.
A major international exhibition featuring two of the most significant artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries – Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei – will open at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), Melbourne, in December 2015, and The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, in June 2016.
Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei, developed by the NGV and The Warhol, with the participation of Ai Weiwei, will explore the significant influence of these two exemplary artists on modern and contemporary life, focussing on the parallels, intersections and points of difference between the two artists’ practices. Surveying the scope of both artists’ careers, the exhibition at the NGV will present over 300 works, including major new commissions, immersive installations and a wide representation of paintings, sculpture, film, photography, publishing and social media.
When you're visiting the NGV International with a baby or toddler, at some stage you'll probably be needing a baby/parents room. Whether it's for feeding, changing nappies or breastfeeding, the NGV's Infant room will accomodate your needs.
This clean, spacious and modern infant room is located near the Women's and Men's restrooms near the Robert Raynor Gallery, Ground Level and contains a microwave for heating food and bottles, highchairs, change areas with bins, private breastfeeding areas with comfy chairs and there's even a fenced mini play area with blocks for toddlers. The play area is the perfect escape for toddlers (or even slightly older children) if you need to feed your baby and have a toddler on hand that needs to be occupied.
