The Pauline Gandel Children’s Gallery at Melbourne Museum is a wondrous place where children can explore, play and learn.
Future palaeontologists will excavate fossils in a dinosaur dig. Budding botanists will traverse the discovery garden, exploring plants and stories. Young curators can gaze at specially selected museum objects. For everyone who loves to dance, there is a ‘camouflage disco’ where children turn into spotty and stripy disco dancing animals.
This unique gallery is for families, carers, educators and children to learn together. The exhibitions combine hands-on exploration and discovery, open-ended play-based learning, extraordinary immersive environments and unique museum collection objects.
Suitable for babies to five-year-olds.
