Great news for Geelongites! A brand new children's museum has opened at the historic Wintergarden Building in McKillop Street.

Geelong’s first Children’s Museum MoPA: Museum of Play and Art is home to an impressive collection of fully immersive exhibits and experiences.

The Museum offers plenty of fun, but has also been designed to compliment the Early Learning Framework for Kindergarten aged children and with the Victorian Curriculum for Children in early primary school.

“All the exhibits and activities at MoPA were inspired by the worlds’ best Children’s Museums,” says Tom, co-director of the Museum, with his wife Billie.

Exhibits have been designed, engineered and crafted by designers, craftspeople and artists from all over Australia.

Features include:

Soft Play designed to support the development of a toddler’s fine-motor skills, whilst also incorporating creative block assembly and identity-building sculpture.

Sunset City (for the bigger kids), which rewards little climbers with an impressive view over the entire museum.

The crowd-favourite Wind Wall, brought home to Geelong from the world’s biggest and best Children’s museums; a Zoom Room filled with LEGO® that children can build with and race down giant ramps and jumps.

The Wind Wall

The now-famous MoPA Art Car that allows children to layer their creation on a real VW bug, challenging the young artists to consider just how unusual a canvas can be, and much more.
