School holidays are upon us, and young minds will soon be thirsting for stimulation. Whilst there's a myriad of options on offer, why resort to the same old same old? The wiz's at M.A.D.E. (Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka) have been busy, as they secretly prepare a special boredom antidote. The fruits of their labour, a self-guided funny-face tour, to teach kids about the underpinnings of comics and cartoons. A dose of exhilaration, where kids won't only learn about the exaggerated style of this undyingly popular medium, but also gain an opportunity to then unleash their artistic creativity.

Observe, admire, learn. And then scribble, sketch, and draw. And after the kids have spent themselves, there will be opportunities to hang their artwork on display in this award-winning installation. M.A.D.E., located on the site of the 1854 Eureka Stockade uprising in Ballarat, is one of Australia’s newest museums. Winner of the 2015 MAGNA Innovation Award, it is dedicated to exploring and exposing the evolution of democracy, and how it has shaped the world around us. Using art and immersive, interactive content, M.A.D.E not only inspires visitors to contemplate contemporary issues, but also challenges them to consider their own response to social outcomes.

If you haven't been to Ballarat lately, consider taking a drive (or train-ride) up to this beaut' getaway. Between 1 - 1.5 hours away (from both Melbourne and Geelong), it's the perfect day trip or vacation destination. With a range of attractions to boast of, Ballarat has plenty to offer. And with world class exhibitions at a world class museum, you've absolutely got it made.
