4 January 2019

The holidays are underway and Melbourne’s museums and galleries have crammed a summer’s worth of fun into their kids programs.

Peter Pan goes wrong at the Arts Centre

Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Arts Centre

Learn magic tricks, join an invisible orchestra or watch Peter Pan go terribly wrong at Arts Centre Melbourne this summer break.

Make a movie, create a comic or build a virtual reality world at one of ACMI’s workshops just for kids.

The Music Play Family Festival returns in 2019 with four days of concerts, workshops and free activities for families.

With an offering of daily story time and trips down memory lane via the Make Believe exhibition, summer is a great time for kids to explore the Melbourne Museum.

The beloved science museum goes deep space for the summer with Earthlight: Lunar Hub – experience a virtual reality trip to the moon and learn more about space flight.

Immerse yourself in stories about the power of human connection at the Love exhibition or attend a special card-making workshop to make a card for someone special.

Budding novelists will love the State Library’s Story Camp program, and everyone will enjoy screenings of classic films Wizard Of Oz and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

From festivals, workshops and an art studio just for kids, there’s enough happening at the NGV to occupy them all summer long.
