Take your children to Mornington's very own art gallery, the MPRG.

Melbourne families are rather spoiled when it comes to art galleries.

In the city, most people know about the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) International and Australia but there are also art galleries scattered throughout the suburbs too.

The Melbourne Crochet Club meets fortnightly to learn crochet, meet other Melbourne mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
Join in on the NEW Art of Beer tour of Melbourne, which will cover the city's relationship with beer, its history and the best places to drink and enjoy beer.
There's the Heide Museum of Modern Art with Kids, the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park and the Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) to name a few.

Heading further out to Mornington and you must pay a visit to the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery (MPRG) if you're in the area.

While the MPRG is on the smaller side, there's enough to see and do with your young artlings.

The gallery space itself can be walked through within 30 minutes ..or less if your children are rushing. However, there's a little shop to nose at in the foyer, a cafe, plenty of beautiful space to run around outside and if you're lucky, you might catch a kids' art workshop.

You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 9th September 2018 at Fitzroy Gardens.

See what's on at the MPRG before your visit and schedule in a visit around the time the gallery hosts a school holiday activity or Young at Art class and you'll spend longer enjoying the serenity and the artworks on display. See what's on here.

Once you're done inside the gallery, head outside and let the kids run free. There's a beautiful lake with plenty of birdlife to see and you can't miss the stunning Mornington Botanical Rose Gardens right next door; a must if you're visiting in warmer months.

If your kids can handle a little more art, you can walk to the Oak Hill Gallery in less than 5 minutes!

Add the MPRG to your visit list if you're planning to visit the region anytime soon. The Big Goose is just down the road so maybe you could fit both in!
