Interactive art museum dedicated to lollies opens in Fitzroy

Imagine an indoor play centre for kidults. A colourful pastel themed space filled with themed lolly art. The list of Sugar Republic activities include (but not limited to):

A giant pink grown-up ball pit
Fairy floss swing
Giant jump-out-of-a-cake
Giant gum-ball machine
Spin the Wheel O' Treats
Sherbert filled rainbow bridge
Neon art wall
Forest of bananas
Self serve ice-cream & sprinkles

Now you're probably wondering why we're talking about Sugar Republic on Melbourne Mums Group when this is an art-museum designed for grown-ups. Well, this is because the all-new new Fitzroy pop-up is attracting families and children for all the right reasons = fun for all!

Children under 2yrs enter free and children of all ages get as much out of the art space as the grown-up people.

Key points before deciding whether to go with your children or not:

Street parking is available but limited, public transport advised.
Bookings are required online and in advance, there are no tickets on the door and each session is limited.
Lollies are given out at various stations, but not in the masses. Don't expect to go home with a bag full of sugary treats and prep your kids of this so they don't expect mountains of the stuff.
No diving into the ball pit!
Some installations are delicate, keep an eye on your kids in case they bulldoze through the art space.
You need to wait your turn on occasion; prep your kids because they may need to be patient.
Sessions are for 1.5hrs.

Realities aside, Sugar Republic is a super-fun activity for all ages, and is expected to be busy during the school holidays.. so book ahead!

Sugar Republic - Sweet as!
