Museums and Galleries Kids Activities Melbourne
Just a short drive from the CBD and 4km's east of Frankston, McClelland is adorned with trees, space, a lake, cafe and art gallery. The Sculpture Park is set in 16 hectares and showcases over 70 works by prominent Australian sculptors such as Inge King, Lenton Parr, Clement Meadmore, Anthony Pryor and Norma Redpath along with, recent acquisitions including Rick Amor, Peter Corlett, Robert Owen, Lisa Roet and Ken Unsworth. The kids will roam, play, discover and quite possibly learn amongst the sculptures. There's no set direction on where to head so it's fun to just discover and find your own trail. You can even picnic under the sculptures. Space is on your side.
The inside exhibition spaces accommodate temporary exhibitions and collection displays of works on paper, photography, paintings and sculptures. Curated and travelling exhibitions are exhibited primarily in The Elisabeth Murdoch and French Gallery. Entry is by a gold coin.
There's a cafe on site too that's open for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. It overlooks the lake and sculptures and offers a seasonal menu, good coffee (takeaway too), cakes, cold drinks, wine and has gluten free options too. We brunched on roast pumpkin, goats cheese, caramelised leek and onion tarts and polished off with lemonade scones. The McClelland Gallery Café is open: Tuesday - Sunday from 10am - 4.30pm.
They offer School Holiday Programs (check the website homepage, our facebook page or subscribe for updates) and special events.
